Technique Goals Achieved: Featuring Ryan!

Published: Jan 4, 2015  |   Category: Uncategorized

As part of our "Under the 'C' Discoveries" practice incentive, students have focused on specific technique goals.  For most students, their first challenge was establishing a habit of sitting at the proper distance, height, and posture at the piano.  To achieve that goal, they must demonstrate that their proper placement has become a habit by placing themselves correctly at the piano for 5 weeks at the beginning of their lesson.  I am happy to report that many have achieved that goal!  There has been a delay in getting pictures posted due to technical difficulties (photo storage issues).  Rather than post every one at once, I will post daily blogs highlighting one student a day, with a picture to show their progress. 

Ryan was the first student to master his position.  You can see how nice his posture is.  His bench height allows him to have a nice horizontal line from his elbows to his wrists, and his fingers are relaxed, natural, and curved.  His feet are firmly planted under his knees.  Great job, Ryan!
