‘I believe that the unity of mind and body is an objective reality. They are not just parts somehow related to each other, but an inseparable whole while functioning. A brain without a body could not think.’ Moshe Feldenkrais Music is a language. A language without words. How can our instruments or our voice or our gestures become simple tools through which we can express that which cannot be expressed in words?
Many professional musicians find that they develop physical or emotional injuries (often a combination of both). Their initial love for music can get obscured by these injuries and feelings, often brought on by the stressful conditions that the classical music profession can put upon us. I believe the Feldenkrais method can provide you with a way to reconnect to the love of music that made you want to become a musician in the first place.
Because of my background I have a special interest in working with musicians. For over twenty years I have worked with young musicians at the Royal Academy of Music in London, the Birmingham Conservatoire, and Dartington International Summer School. I am interested in working with all instrumentalists, singers and conductors.
We can work together in individual lessons. In those lessons we will work both with and without your instrument. For more details about individual lessons click here.
