Feldenkrais for Musicians

Performers work physically hard to serve our art form. 

Finding a way of staying healthy as a musician is important.

There are often physical issues around playing we feel we just have to live with.

These can cause pain, or discomfort; stop you performing well, lessen your enjoyment of being a musician.

This is where I can help. As a professional classical musician myself, I understand how we were taught our instruments, the pressures of standing in front of an audience and performing at the highest level. I’ll be speaking your language. I’ve toured and performed for over 20 years, so understand the stresses and excitements of that life from the inside out.

Who can I help?

If you’re a musician: pupil, student, teaching or performing, I can help you.

What can I help with?

  • Improving posture
  • restricted movement/ RSI / chronic tension
  • Pain whilst playing or performing,
  • Being able to play for longer in comfort.
  • Performance anxiety/ Stage presence
  • Freeing up artistic expression.

I work with musicians, individually, or in groups, either in weekly sessions just for you, or workshops.

I work with young musicians, and adults of all ages.

How does it work?

I use a process of organic learning, through moving and sensing, to help free up your habitual patterns. Our movement habits, embedded in our nervous system, often become outmoded or dysfunctional, creating unnecessary limitations.

We use gentle movement to get beneath the body’s defence system. We’ll improve your awareness of how you’re playing, to enable you to learn new patterns of thinking, moving, and sensing.


  • Underlying movement and thinking habits that are getting in the way of efficient technique.
  • Improving your physical set-up
  • Adjusting technique to fit your anatomy.
  • If needed, modifying instrument hardware (chin-rests/shoulder pads etc) to make the instrument fit you better

MusicMoves: Feldenkrais for Musicians Workshops:

You are your primary instrument.

In my sessions and workshops we’ll look at:

  • How your whole body supports your technique. 
  • Reducing aches and pains
  • Supporting your playing or singing from whole your skeleton.
  • Concentrating on skeletal movement is the key to easy movement.
  • Developing your self-awareness and learning to reduce or prevent future discomfort/injury
  • How work with your body not against it.
  • How to lock into your organic learning abilities.
  • learn new options for greater freedom of movement
