Your Music Unbound: A Feldenkrais movement course for musicians

Monday / October 26, 2015 / 1:00 p.m.
The Loft
939 Boylston St.
Boston
MA
United States

Injury? Tension? Posture? Anxiety? A lack of flow and ease? 

All of these impediments to your art are bound up in your most basic habitual movement patterns: from the habits you use to hold yourself up and move around, to those you use to interact with other people, to the very patterns you use to make music. 

The good news is that you can free yourself from these patterns with the same sort of patient self-application you bring to mastering your art. The Feldenkrais Method provides you with a context in which to become aware of the patterns, and, in becoming aware, release them, and discover new and better ways to move and create.

  • Improve your understanding of body mechanics and movement patterns where it matters to you: in making music and in other challenges you face in your daily life.
  • Develop a healthier relationship with the challenges of music-making. We all get in our own way by trying too hard.The class will help you notice when you efforts are inefficient,  and find ways to change those habits. 
  • Acquire tools to take care of yourself. Learn how to shed unnecessary tensions and 'reset' yourself to move with more fluidity and focus. 

All movement lessons recorded for home review, and concepts explained so you can develop your own customized exercises and warmups.

 

Mondays 10/26, 11/2, 11/9, 11/23
