This week, we’re saying cheers to the weekend, but also to good hand position! ?
So, raise a glass (mugs, coffee cups, and others work best) and notice your hand position as your fingers wrap around the cup. (Don’t hold the cup by the handle.)
Do you see how your fingers are slightly curved? The fingers should be relaxed, and there should be no unnatural positions or tensions.
Another way to check your hand position is to bring your arms to your side and let your fingers relax. This is also great hand position to use when playing clarinet!
Happy Friday, and happy practicing!
