SOLUTIONS for COMMON TEACHING PROBLEMS: Building or Reinforcing the Concept of a Rounded Hand at the Piano


In this series Elizabeth highlights the common student issues encountered by teachers quite often and offers teaching solutions you can take right to the studio!

  • In this video we discussed how to secure a rounded hand position with a beginner and how to re-build a faulty hand position with a transfer student.

Below are TIMESTAMPS where I mentioned certain resources in this video. Links to those resources are included here for you.

18:50 - The "Stone on the Mountain" activity can be found in My First Piano Adventure Lesson Book A.
