Where is the keystone of the arch? Second MCP or the wrist?
Fingers/thumb and the wrist
Handy Harry and Rex Wrist

Alan shows a wrist movement totally opposite from what you would expect
Stable wrist, rotation and functional thumb are prerequisites for healthy scales
Overholding, springy wrist and elasticity
Structured hand is not a stiff hand if it's elastically created

Part 2 - Appassionata with Alan. More on hand structure and piano walking among other things
Alan is helping Jordan empowering her playing. A really good example of Alan's teaching.
