I apologize if this has been discussed previously -- I've searched past posts and can't find something that specifically speaks to this problem.
How would you help a student who comes to you with the habit of holding his/her violin with her left hand? Her left wrist is totally bent to hold the weight of her instrument, affecting her intonation and everything else.
I've pointed out the need to hold it with her neck and not the left hand, but no matter how many times I suggest it, she keeps cracking her left wrist.
I've read past posts on instrument size, shoulder rests, etc....and I'm convinced her instrument is a good fit for her, along with the s. rest.
Anyone know a good trick to combat this problem?
