The importance of Music Posture Chairs

The importance of music posture chairs for music practice

Medical experts and academic research attest to the fact that music-making is strenuous physical activity.

Without proper body support and appropriate equipment, musicians can suffer overuse injuries that inhibit learning and diminish performance. The pain and distractions caused by such discomfort can lead to disruptive behavior in younger music students. For older musicians, such irritations may discourage or prevent further music participation.

Why are proper music chairs important?

If a musician is sitting on an uncomfortable, poor-quality chair, they are going to be unhappy, playing in pain, and playing poorly. Eventually over time it could predispose them to injury. The right chair helps musicians fine-tune their instrument to sound the best and perform better.
