Posture and balance

I know posture is something all singing teachers talk about but just lately I have taken on some new singers who have all been amazed at the difference standing straight can make to their resonance and timbre. We have all learnt to rush around head forwards, shoulders hunched over driving wheels or computer screens. If we sing music theatre we tend to want to sing out to our audience instead of letting them come into our space. Just moving the head back a centimetre or two can make all the difference! I know when we act on stage we have to put our body through all kinds of poses but knowing the freedom when our body is in perfect balance is something we all need to keep connected to.
