Would anyone have a suggestion on how to address a student with a really tight hold of the left hand? he really squeezes.
His violin position on the collarbone is good, he can hold the instrument steady between collarbone and cheek.
So far I have been working on playing slow, easy tunes, and exercises with the only focus on relaxing. he started lessons in june, is playing some christmas tunes, and has a good feel for the violin, and is eager to learn. It might be that the left hand will relax in time, but I am worried it might become a bad habit.
