Introduction

The goal of this unit is to teach you how to center yourself and set in piano position. "Centering into piano position" involves gaining an understanding of optimal posture at the piano and finding a natural hand position. By "Centering and Setting" every time you play the piano, you are providing yourself an excellent foundation for all of your piano studies for the rest of your life!

Centering is not just a physical activity but a mental one. By finding your center, breathing deeply, focusing, and letting your hands float up to a neutral resting position, you will learn to have an alert and ready body and mind.
