Default Re: Flute fingers

My reminder to students is having relaxed fingers. That tends to have them straighten them more naturally. One way to demonstrate that is to have them hold their fingers up, then drop them relaxed and naturally where they fall.

I also have them think in terms of levers. Most of the 'action' is in the tendons and ligaments in the forearm, rather than the hands.
