Playing music is movement.
Without movement, playing is impossible.
Improve your movement, improve your playing.
Humans beings are the most versatile and sophisticated musical instrument of all, and for a long and healthy professional life a performer needs both physical and mental stamina, and well-organised and efficient self-use. Over time, too many musicians succumb to the kinds of injuries that a demanding schedule of rehearsal, performance and travel can bring on.
The Feldenkrais Method was designed to enable us to access the brain’s ability to unlearn old, unhelpful habits, and replace them with new, better, more effective ways of moving and being. As we rediscover our innate human ability to act with less effort, and ever greater ease, our performance becomes ever more confident, charismatic and joyous.
“The aim is a person that is organised to move with minimum effort and maximum efficiency, not through muscular strength, but through increased consciousness of how movement works.”
