This is going to be a wierd one so please bear with me.
I went a bit too fast and zoomed from beginner to grade 5 piano in three years (passed all with merit not that it's important). Why? - because I really enjoyed it.
As a result of being mid forties and maybe being a bit tense in the shoulder when playing, I developed wrist pains otherwise known as RSI so I stopped playing for a year thinking it would get worse.
Having tried and failed with physio treatment I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing that can be done other than to "manage" it and I have started playing again - but less intensively and for short periods.
My question is does anyone know a teacher in London with experience of teaching pupils with this condition and how to ensure posture/technique is adapted and maintained and maybe how to continue with grades but in a way that contains the condition?
Any views or similar experiences welcome. Thanks.
