Many have seen a pianist adjust and readjust a piano stool before beginning a performance, or, perhaps, have received instruction as to how to hold a golf club prior to the involved act of swinging at the golf ball. Any complicated skill, it seems, requires proper position if optimum results are to be attained. But few of us realize that proper position is just as essential when engaged in the complicated act of reading as it is when playing a piano or driving a golf ball.
