I've been a follower of violinist.com for many years, and absolutely love it. What a wonderful community. I am a violinist/teacher/student, and I have a studio of about 16 students and have been teaching for quite a few years. Tension, not surprisingly, is a huge issue in my own practice, but especially with my students. However, I have one new beginner, an eight year old boy who I can barely get to move, he is so tightly wound. Every finger and joint in his arms seems to become like concrete as soon as he picks up his violin. Any advice for helping him to loosen up?
