This is the workshop for you!

Using our bodies in the most efficient way is vital to producing a good sound and maintaining good health. Dr. William Conable, a pioneering Alexander technique teacher and professor of cello at Ohio State University, realized an interesting fact: We move like we think. If we correct our notions about how our bodies work, correcting our physical motions is natural. He coined the term “Body Map” for  our concept of our bodies.

QuoteOn January 17, 2015, we have the privilege of hosting Melanie Sever ( with the six-hour course “What Every Musician Needs to Know About the Body.” Participants will work to develop an accurate mental image of their bodies through explanations, anatomical models and pictures, and observation. This enables them to use their bodies effectively when performing.

Teachers will get an added benefit in learning how Body Maps are communicated and corrected. Every element of technique in making music is related to physical motion. Body Mapping provides tools to help students understand exactly what they need to do.

This workshop is open to all interested parties. A discounted rate from Ms. Sever, some grants, and fundraising have kept the costs down. We hope that you will join us in the new year for this exciting opportunity.
