Recovering from Tendonitis:Where to begin?

November 10, 2009 18:44

Hello everyone!

I am a undergraduate conservatory student who encountered a really bad tendontis/ulnar nerve  problem. I was diagnosed with severe tendonitis after I won a competition and was preparing to play with orchestra. I am finally getting over my tendonitis/nerve problem and I needed some of your advice. I have read Flesch/Galamian/Auer and studied many different aspects of technique. I realized that i was playing with a faulty technique for quite sometime. I understand that everyone says to "consult your teacher" about such matters, but I really could use some of your input. Where do i begin on getting back to practicing? i tried developing a nice technical practice routine to try and get back (since I can only play for about an hour a day..split up into two intervals) Where would you begin if this happened to you? I'd really appreciate your advice! =)
