I am a new Suzuki teacher and I am having a little trouble with the hand posture of my youngest student. When she plays her hand goes to a fist position and she just uses the finger needed at the time. We have only been working on it for 3 weeks, but I need some ideas to help relax her hand. We have done things like “dropping” and I have also had her “ride” on my hand to show an example. She is GREAT with the rhythms, just can’t relax her hands.

Thanks!

Ashley
