2010 Conference Workshop
Open To: Public / Practitioners / Trainees
Moshe Feldenkrais identified four components of the waking state—sensing, feeling, thinking, and moving. This workshop will show how these components apply to musical performance, and why musicians respond well to Feldenkrais Method® lessons. Through demonstration and Awareness Through Movement® lessons, participants will examine abstract ideas, imagination, perception, touch, rhythm, attention, technique and expression in music performance. Understanding how performers think “in” music and learn music can provide practitioners insight on ways to explore and interpret ATM lessons.
Steve Duke (1991) is widely known for his performances in classical and jazz music as well as the avant-garde. He wrote the first article on multi-style technique in 1987 and developed the first music curriculum in the Feldenkrais Method in 1989. Steve Duke is a Distinguished Research Professor at Northern Illinois University.
