Squishing this little exercise ball from time to time can be a great addition to your home practicing. Whether you play piano, violin, guitar, or flute you’ll need your fingers to be strong and round. Try to find the one that feels pretty soft (not with beans inside) and get yourself or your child into a habit playing with it a couple of minutes a day. You can also play catch with it – catch with one hand all the fingers closing fast and strong.
It’s a simple, fun, and very effective way to improve your hand and finger position for playing any musical instrument. Give it a try! Any sports store should have them in stock.
