Playing the piano begins with proper seating at the instrument. There are several components for you to consider in helping yourself or your child to find the correct position
-the height of the seat
-the placement of the feet
-the distance of the seat from the keyboard
-the position of the torso
-the position of the shoulders
All of these elements combine to give students the proper body alignment and balance needed to move FREELY at the piano
You will all receive a picture of yourselves seated properly at the piano. Get Mom or Dad…someone to check that you are seated properly..even a full length mirror beside you will do. This is very important!! You cannot play FREELY and without injury without being seated properly.
