Introduction to Body-Mapping Class for Faculty and Staff

Thursday / September 15, 2016 / 1:00 p.m.
1140 Boylston St, Room 2E
Boston
MA
02215

Please Join us Thursday 9/15 1:00-2:00PM, Rm 2E, 1140 Boylston. Open to all Faculty and Staff!

During these sessions you will be introduced to Body Mapping and I will share some of what I have learned doing the research supported by the Newbury Comics Faculty Fellowship Grant. I can promise that you will learn some surprising things about yourself that will be relevant to you as a performer and teacher.  There are general sessions and instrument specific sessions. You are welcome to come to any or all. 

The class will be helpful if you would like to…

 

  • Play without pain and help your students play without pain.

  • Understand how your student’s mis-mappings are causing them to move poorly, limiting their potential and putting them at risk for pain or injury.

  • Achieve another level of technical facility.

  • 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
