One of my students has a very tight grip. Part of the problem is that he has a hard time placing the left hand fingers independently.
For instance, if he plays third, second, first finger, the first fingers end to be too sharp. The first finger places too close to second finger because it seems to miss dependence of the second and third finger.
Are there physical stretching exercises to recommend?
I have demonstrated finger independence exercises with the left hand as if playing piano, moving fingers in different patterns.
I also am working to loosen up his left hand with different exercises.
Any suggestions are welcome!
