Body-Mapping

Body-Mapping is a type of awareness training.  Just as Ear-Training fine-tunes our musical awareness and perception, Body-Mapping fine-tunes and trains our awareness and perception of our bodies.

Body-Mapping is based on the understanding we have an internal pictures of our structure (wrist, shoulder, lungs, etc.), and that these pictures are usually unclear or inaccurate.

These inaccurate pictures (mis-mappings) negatively affect the quality of our movement and our performance.

Take a moment to consider your wrist…. then take a look at the x-ray displayed. The wrist has 8 mobile bones. Thinking that your wrist is like a hinge is in conflict with the reality of the structure. Your movement will be affected.

Learning to clearly perceive your basic structure leads to more efficient movement and a better, more responsive technique

This knowledge is powerful. It supports personal growth and also makes one a stronger teacher.

What we will cover...

Arm, Wrist and Hand Structure, Balance and Support, Tension/Relaxation, Structures of Breathing, Inclusive Awareness, Spatial Awareness, Communication and Performance Anxiety, Specific concerns about instrumental technique, Pain (Back, neck, arm, finger, knee, ankle, etc.), and Current Research

This class will be helpful if you would like to...

Help your students play without pain.

Understand why some students just don’t get it when you are trying to teach them to move better.

Understand how a shift in your understanding and awareness can create a positive shift in your playing, singing or teaching
