Description

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.
