Posture at the piano: piano playing tips from Melanie Spanswick

Today’s vlog (vlog 9) focuses on Posture. It’s really important to learn to sit correctly at the piano from the beginning so hopefully my tips here will be helpful when you begin your lessons.

My publications:

For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 level are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
