Body Mapping for Music Educators

Music educators, do you suffer from back pain, vocal fatigue, or physical stress? Do you know that as many as 60 percent of your students may be in pain as well? Body mapping is a practical method for self-care and performance enhancement that anyone can apply. This interactive workshop will teach you how to correct confusions about your body?s structure, leading to improved performance and teaching techniques. The workshop will include a wealth of applications for teaching and daily life including how your body moves during teaching, performance, and everyday activities. You will also learn to observe your students? technical limitations from a movement perspective. Please bring an instrument and a towel or mat for floor work. Course texts: What Every Musician Needs to Know about the Body, by Barbara Conable; and Sensory Tune-ups: A Guided Journal of Sensory Experiences for Performers of All Ages, by Kay S. Hooper. LIMITED TO 12 PARTICIPANTS.
