The Steps to Perfect Posture
Chappell, Jon
Teaching Music, v15 n3 p51 Dec 2007
Many people have memories of being told to "stop slouching" while seated at the piano bench. But the reality is that good piano posture is not as simple as bolting upright on the bench when the teacher barks. According to Eric Sutz, a Chicago-area piano teacher and performer, one should see a natural curve in his/her lower lumbar area and should have an actual strength, from his/her back through his/her glutes, to hold himself/herself upright, especially for long periods of time.
