 RE: teaching alternate fingerings - addendum

Also, in cases where students hands haven't grown large enough yet, we'll experiment with both methods and see which pattern works best and stick with that one. Then when their hands develope more, they can introduce the other pattern and then pick the more comfortable one, though it will probably be the one they first learned and used regularly.

I had one student who, anytime she tried to play low F or 3rd space C, her pinky would hit the E/B key. So we had to get her switched over to the left hand F/C key.
The only problem i see in most beginners, particularly from one school that i teach at where they are not very well taught nor pay very much attention, is that their low levers are often bent so low E and sometimes even F won't come out due to pads not closing all the way. So i got in the habit of checking over the students' horns as they were putting it together in ever lesson and make sure there were no injuries.
