A month ago, I assumed that I would never fix my ‘bad habits’ on the flute- I just thought they were things wrong with ME.. But the hands-on anatomy in AT class made me realize that there was not much wrong with my body – just how much uncessary stress I put upon it! AT is helping my music practice by removing excess tension, and giving me the freedom to move around physically with my instrument as one!
