Deliberate practice, delaying automaticity, developing expertise

I wrote a blog entry in my music blog about what the "deliberate" part of "deliberate practice" means. The results of Ericsson and other psychologists on the role that deliberate practice has on expertise acquisition -- possibly to the extent that "talent" is irrelevant -- are fairly well known. But what is deliberate practice? It is assuredly not just lots of repetitive practice. See my entry in From the Bench.
