    It depends on the song, how hard I'm playing it, and how much time is between plays...

    I've got a bunch of favorite songs of varying length. Some are hours long, others much shorter, and I believe we need two kinds of endurance. There is the one that demands a lot of concentration during a piece that is challenging but has points of rest built in, and the other that keeps the mouthpiece on the lips for a considerably shorter time, and both need to be practiced.

    Hope this helps!

    Wow! a song that is hours long or you can play your favorite song for hours?
