Posture Checklist for Better Singing

Part of the Singing For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The next time you watch a professional singer, observe the posture. Posture plays a large part in how well you sing. If you hunch over, your lungs can't inflate fully; and if you fidget, you distract your audience — and yourself. Use the following list to correctly position yourself for singing:

  • Feet are hip-width apart with feet parallel.

  • Knees are unlocked with the weight evenly distributed on the three points of the feet — the tripod.

  • Spine is long and straight, from bottom to top.

  • Head is centered over shoulders; chin is parallel with the ground.

  • Shoulders are back but down and released.

  • Arms are hanging at your side.
