What Every Pianist Needs to Know About the Body
April 11 - 15, 2022
This course offers an in-depth introduction to the somatic method of "Body Mapping," our self-representation of our body in our brain. In addition to preventing and resolving performance-related injuries or limitations by correcting faults in our body map, musicians will discover how well-coordinated movement increases both ease and control in playing, greatly enhances and expands artistic choices, and helps lessen and even eliminate any negative effects from performance anxiety. In the end, our movement and expressive possibilities will be limitless and our playing a continual source of joy, freedom, and renewal.
"A fascinating workshop, the consequences of which have been quite extraordinary: the pain in my neck has virtually disappeared..."
— Patrick Ayrton, Harpsichordist and Conductor
