Anita King

A performer and internationally renowned teacher, Anita King's work centers on the connections between coordinate movement and musical structure.


Her presentations explore this relationship, revealing how the music itself can be the catalyst for our movement choices. 

I recently gave a 13-session course in which I led participants on a deep dive into the 5 sections of What Every Musician Needs to Know About the Body. The course is heavy on exploration so that people can really take time to embody the information and principles underlying the somatic method of Body Mapping.

I am happy to announce that the recordings of these sessions are now available for viewing. The following link will bring you to the course outline and topics covered in each session.

“I recently took the WEM course (“What Every Musician Needs to Know About the Body”) offered by Anita King over a period of 15 sessions. I appreciated taking the time to absorb the material at a slower and deeper level than is normally possible in the traditional 6-hour WEM format.

Participants were encouraged to take what they learned and study it at their instrument (or singing).
These explorations led to several significant “lightbulb” moments for me, and it became clear that I needed to re-think my approach to the piano.

Anita was warm and inclusive during her presentations and demonstrations. After learning from her unique methodology, I was able to freely experiment with integrating my physical movements to complement my musical intent and expression.

I have found new freedom and great joy at the piano again and continue to investigate new pianistic possibilities thanks to Anita.”
