Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, my piano instructor always points out about my tendency to tense my hand (especially in fast passages).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or maybe if tensing your hand is not the problem, then probably you're holding out a note for a beat or two longer than it needs to be.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No no I guess the problem is with my hands tension. But how can I solve it ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you have a tennis ball (or any other ball of that size), wrap your hand around it, but don't grip it to hard or you would tensing your hand again. This should help you to mimic the proper hand position on the piano without tensing your hand.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Tarek.David Your welcome. I hope the advice helps because that's how I relieved my hand's tension.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And one more thing that I didn't mention, once your hand is draped over the ball in the correct position, slide the ball out from underneath the hand while maintaining the correct position. Remember, don't tense up your hand while doing so!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0She also might be telling you to release the pedal! I get that a lot from my instructor. I will be focusing so hard on the piece I forget about the pedal.
