    My teacher has always said to me to not use your fingers (to push) but use the weight of your hands/fingers i've never understood this, hopefully someone can explain this to me.

    What she means is to relax your hands and feel the gravity, and play by letting your fingers "drop" on the piano with the use of it's mass and the gravity we have on earth 8) .

    The gravity isn't just for fun, it has a function :) . By letting your fingers drop using the gravity makes piano playing easier and more relaxed.
