How should I decide fingering?

Find the fingering that works for you.

 

Every player has different sized hands. For smaller children, it’s good to follow the fingering patterns indicated in music sheets, since it’s an important experience. However, it’s a different story if you are performing at a recital or contest. If you looked at it objectively, there may be such a thing as “ideal fingering”, but the most important thing is to choose the fingering that fits you the best.

Very often, the fingering that worked at practice doesn’t work at the actual performance. So, I suggest finding a different fingering pattern if you feel that your current fingering doesn’t suit you or feel very uncomfortable with it after 3 or 4 days of hard practice. Make sure to avoid interrupting a beautiful flow of music because of fingering. Try different fingering patterns and find the one that works for you.
