Workshops

Feldenkrais for Musicians in 2021

You are your primary instrument.

In my sessions and workshops we’ll look at:

  • How your whole body supports your technique. You are your primary instrument. 
  • Reducing aches and pains
  • Supporting your playing or singing from whole your skeleton. (The ease of what you do, and quality of your movement is based on how well you support your head, shoulders, arms and fingers from the rest of 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

I enjoy teaching ” Feldenkrais for Musicians “ workshops. If you would like me to come and do a workshop for your ensemble or choir please contact me.

I have been a guest lecturer at the Royal College of Music, the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, for the Musicians Union, the RNCM, and the British Army Band at Sandhurst.

Workshops have included:

Comfort on Parade: Using Feldenkrais to find greater ease and comfort whilst playing/standing on parade

Feldenkrais as Secret Ninja Practice: Using Feldenkrais to make everyday practise easier.

Bodywork for String Players: using Shoulders, arms and hands with less effort.

If you’re coming to a workshop, you will need to wear comfortable clothes you can move easily in, layers to keep warm, and bring a mat.
