In this six week class we will work on building ease and awareness in order to increase your abilities as a player and performer. Understanding basic skeletal anatomy and natural mechanics of body motion can go a long way in creating fluid movement and developing excellent technique. In addition, heightened awareness of your body and its place in space while you play will help to produce a fuller, freer sound, reduce physical tension and increase your listening potential. With this template you will become aware of your physical and mental habits and be able to start redirecting your thinking to change unwanted habits. In addition, developing these skills helps to limit the chance of physical injury and lessen performance anxiety.
The class is open to all instrumentalists, not just violinists, ages 15 and above. The class is taught either in person at my home studio or online for those individuals who live far enough away to make in person participation prohibitive. The format is a combination of lecture, discussion, demonstration and experimentation. You will bring your instrument to each session and be given the opportunity to try techniques out by experimenting and/or performing independently.
Please contact me if you think you would like to participate or have further questions.
