Level 3A Technique Secrets
The second secret is RELAXED WRIST FOR CHORDS
Wrist Takes a Bow
On the closed keyboard lid, set your R.H. in a rounded hand position.
Your thumb should be rather tall, perched on the side tip.
Let your wrist “take a bow” by gently moving it down, then up.
(Note: Fingers should stay curved, in touch with the surface.)
Do a “wrist bow” twice with each hand, then hands together.
Wrist bows will help you play chords with a full, round tone.
