How to sit at the piano?

In this video tutorial, you will learn how to sit at the instrument correctly so that there are no problems with posture, technique, and sound production.

When landing at the piano, pay attention to 4 points:

1.Height
Adjust the chair so that your elbows are not lower than the keyboard. To control your technique yourself, you need to sit down, put your hands on the keys and ask someone to take a picture of you in this position. The correct option is if the elbows are parallel to the keyboard or slightly higher.

2. Where to put a chair?
The chair should be right in the center, opposite the first octave (often with the brand logo above it). The distance should be such that when the hands are extended, the fingers rest on the beginning of the keys.
One of the most common mistakes is to sit too close to see the notes better. You can quickly get used to this situation, and when you get to a more serious level where you need a “wingspan”, it will be difficult to retrain.

3. How much space does a chair take up?
Traditionally half or 1/3. The distance to the keyboard is regulated by the back and tilt, so you will create additional discomfort by moving the fulcrum on the seat.

4. Legs
The legs are a support that you will need when making the right sound, especially when switching to a powerful Forte. How do I check if you are sitting correctly? With the correct position of your feet, you can easily get up from the chair even during the game.
