Abstract [en]

In this thesis I have studied how hypermobile joints affect my violin playing and tried to to find solutions how to cope with hypermobility. 

The purpose is to find tools how to change my left-hand technique so that I can play Bach´s Fugue from Solo sonata in g minor in my master concert without pain in my 4th finger and without tension in my left-hand. The goal is to find a way to play with hypermobile joints so that my technique will serve the music in the best possible way. 

The biggest questions are: what hypermobility is, how can I cope with it, how to play more relaxed and how to develop a better support for my left-hand little finger, 4th finger. 

The thesis will first focus more on the theoretical side of hypermobility in order to get better understanding of what hypermobilty is and how it might affect a violinist. Then I will get more into the aspects of violin playing and my process.

After this process I noticed that working with hypermobile joints is a lifelong process. In order to have a good left-hand technique while having hypermobile joints it is crucial to have good muscle control and awareness. The most important thing is to find the right tools that work for yourself while trying to cope with hypermobility.
