Of the many factors that affect a musician’s performance, seating and posture are of the most important to consider.
Whether you play a woodwind, string or brass instrument, your seating needs to support your posture to ensure perfect control of your instrument, comfortable breathing, protecting against back pain and fatigue, and promoting good circulation.
Our range of Wenger Music Posture chairs are designed to support students and musicians in the position best suited to their instrument, allowing the best range of natural movement, easy breathing and protection against fatigue and discomfort. These musicians chairs are comfortable, supportive and most importantly portable so that they can be brought with you to other locations; after all it is important to look after your body when performing anywhere, not just in a rehearsal room.
The four main problems with standard chairs:
- When you sit back in standard chairs, the spine is forced out of its natural supportive position.
- It's easy to slouch in a standard chair which forces the body down, lowering the rib cage and constricting the diaphragm.
- Discomfort and lack of support makes you fidget and move to the edge of the seat, which in poorly designed chairs creates even less support.
- This cycle quickly brings on fatigue and makes it difficult to focus on technique and performance.
The Wenger music posture chairs are designed to encourage correct posture and maintain comfort throughout long performances and rehearsals. This is supported by a medical white paper.
The Black Cat Encore chair is an excellent choice for orchestras and schools/colleges alike, encouraging good posture and long‐term comfort.
Additional to our range of music posture chairs, we supply specialist chairs for musicians with specific requirements, including cellist chairs, string bassist chairs, percussionist chairs, conductors' chairs and fully adjustable musicians' chairs which can be adjusted to meet the requirements of every musician in the orchestra.
The Black Cat Encore Cellist Chair has been specially designed to put cellists in the optimal lean forward position that successfully stabilises and comfortably supports the unique playing position that standard chairs cannot accommodate.
The Wenger String Bassist/Percussionist Chair provides full support and stability for the half‐seated position. Continuous comfort and support are essential to a focused performance. But what's more, the chair's adjustable design also gives musicians the flexibility to find their own ideal position.
