Left wrist violin hack

I received a comment last week about how to keep a beginner violinist's left wrist from collapsing, and I was surprised to realize I had never shared this trick!  It's pretty simple, and all you need is a rubber band (those are to violinists what duct tape is to everyone else!).

Pardon the blurry phone pics - I took these during nap time.  Step one - put rubber band on the scroll:



Step 2 - slip student's wrist through the band.  




It's important to make sure the band isn't too loose or too tight - just enough to give the student the feeling of pulling back slightly. Collapsing the wrist means the band feels tighter, so it's a good way to teach them to start noticing and correcting it themselves.  If you have any other solutions for this very common issue, share away!

Exactly how tight is the rubber band supposed to be? Yours may look slightly too tight that it's pulling your wrist back too much.
