Do you feel like practicing all parts separately but every time halfway through a piece you realize you forgot either to count or the articulation or the fingering?
That's very frustrating, right? You practice for hours and hours but feel like you are spinning your wheels.
Here's the thing: when you practice, make sure you do all the separate voices, all 2 part combinations and all 3 part combinations in 50 percent slower tempo at least 3 times in a row correctly (with correct fingering, articulation etc).
Please insist on the current step before going on to the next one. That's why it's too difficult for you - you probably take the next step too soon.
