P3 - B1

Posture and freedom of movement

  • Maintain an appropriate balanced and relaxed posture, both sitting and/or standing, developing stamina to play for longer periods of time:
    • holding the instrument with more ease and without tension
    • in a manner which facilitates freedom of movement and the development of a secure technique

Continue to check that the correct posture is maintained throughout lessons. Include a mix of sitting and standing to ensure consistent posture.

Ask learners to evaluate each other’s posture and suggest improvements, possibly with the help of a mirror.
