Some teachers find in class that when students play, the center of gravity of the entire arm is too high, the strength is concentrated on the shoulders, and the popping sound is particularly heavy, very dry, and very unpleasant. What should I do in such a situation?

How to solve the problem of students' shoulders being too high in guzheng performance?

First, have students practice individual resting first:

The first step, do not put a specific string, just practice to drop the center of gravity;

The second step is to fall on the specific strings, or completely drop the center of gravity;

The third step is to add playing on the basis of the string. At this time, the natural force should be used to exert force.

Secondly, after finishing the chords, perform finger splitting exercises:

Remember to pay attention to the following three points when practicing:

First, start the exercise with the big finger, sink the shoulders and hang the arms, and use the palm joints to naturally exert force;

Second, when exercising with the index finger, middle finger and ring finger, use the small joints to naturally exert force;

Third, use the natural force of the palm joints when practicing small and large ones;

After a period of classroom training, the center of gravity of the student's arm is too high, and the sound of playing the piano is too heavy and dry.
