For Musicians, playing, performing and teaching music all involve dedication and skill development over time. Along the way, focus on technical aspects of music and the specifics of the movements can prove challenging, and for some are associated with physical and mental stress and strain.
As the actions involved in playing become more and more habituated over time, it is important to provide a solid grounding in posture, balance and ease of movement. We want to avoid and prevent repetitive strain injuries, mental stress and loss of enjoyment as the challenges of playing increase.
This mini-workshop will introduce a practical approach to addressing overall ease, power and balance in coordination, in service of enjoyment and increasing skill over time. The process will assist to create conditions of clarity and focus for performance, while minimising disruption due to nerves and lack of confidence.
Please come prepared to play, to ask questions and explore new ideas.
