When giving me a new piece to try, my old drum teacher would make me play it reallllly slowly. He did this because, although he didn't know the name of the phenomenon, he knew that once your muscles and brain 'learn' something it's very difficult to unlearn it. Most of the mistakes I made as a young drum player were due to my muscles "just doing it" even though my brain said other wise, because I'd previously made mistakes whilst rushing through things that then became set in stone.

Lesson: Take it slow and learn it correctly the first time. This applies to everything from drums to politics.
