ring finger

there is a little girl i teach once a week and it is very interesting that if i show her something that requires three fingers she will start the sequence with her ring finger. it isn’t the smartest finger to use for ease of execution. so i tell her do it like this instead and i play it in my knowledgeable way, using my middle finger first, as most pianists would. she just goes back to the ring finger. almost everything she does uses awkward unnecessary fingering. have to admit there’s something fishy about the fact that she’s fine and i’m the one frustrated.
