There's a free Piano Recital Class on Saturday this week at MCM... good for kids and even adults on how to reduce body stress and improve playing!
Free Workshop for String Players - the Alexander Technique.
Learn with Prof. Vivian Torres how to achieve ease in playing, manage stress and anxiety while performing by discovering the Alexander Technique. The Alexander Technique has a long history of helping instrumentalists and singers to perform with less stress and likelihood of injury. By helping musicians improve the quality of the physical movements involved in playing an instrument or singing, the Alexander Technique also helps improve the quality of the music itself. A violinist's stiff shoulders and arms will get in the way of a pleasing sound. By helping musicians release undue tension in their bodies, the Alexander Technique makes possible a performance which is more fluid and lively, less tense and rigid. Over the years, a number of prominent musicians have publicly endorsed the Alexander Technique: Yehudi Menuhin, Paul McCartney, Sting, Julian Bream, James Galwayand the conductor Sir Adrian Boult, to name but a few. Saturday, January 9 at 4 pm. Free event.
