Tune In - A Feldenkrais® Workshop for Musicians

A Feldenkrais® Workshop for Musicians

All coordinated actions, including playing an instrument, are complex processes that begin with intention.They include the coordination of changes in weight, speed, orientation in space, eye-hand coordination and adaptations to gravity. When any of these are inefficient, the results are unnecessary wear and tear on the muscular-skeletal system and less than optimal results.

The Feldenkrais Method™ uses gentle, slow movements to develop and refine changes in quality and improve the ability to adapt. This tool of awareness makes possible expanded choices that can prevent or heal injuries and improve performance. Learning is done through experiment and attention to ease and comfort rather than effort. Interest is in How you do what you do rather than on the accomplishment of any particular action.

This workshop will help you become more aware of the intimate relationship between self-use and the music you create. This enhanced awareness can support your ability to express musical intention.

This introductory workshop will lay the groundwork and provide tools to help you continue learning and improving. You will:

  • Find support from the ground through your skeleton.
  • Understand how to use the large central muscles effectively in order to free the use of arms and hands.
  • Improve the coordinated use of eyes, arms, and pelvis as you play.



Testimonials

MH wrote to us the next day:
"I thank each of you most sincerely for the impressive workshop you offered for musicians. It was so well planned, organized and presented in a flow that was easy to follow yet full of experiences and information.
"The following day I had, for the first time, the experience of truly being aware of internal spaciousness.I felt round and full yet weightless. It seemed as though I had no bones yet was complete, contained yet the inner space merging with surrounding outer space, giving me an effortless, floating sensation and a clear mind. It was remarkable. " -- MH
