MUSI 126 - Our bodies/Our selves: A Systematic Approach for Musicians to Improved Use of the Self

0.5 unit(s)
No matter what our level of proficiency as musicians, we use our bodies as instruments to sense, feel, think and act, whether we are making music or listening to it. In this course, we develop our somatic and proprioceptive awareness through movement, and by doing so increase our pleasure and ability to make music.  Drawing from the Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement, Viewpoints, and Deep Listening methods, this six week course welcomes all levels of musician and sizes, shapes and kinds of bodies. All materials are provided. Students need to wear clothing that moves easily. Drew Minter.

Corequisite(s): Students must be currently enrolled in music lessons or a performing ensemble.

First six-week course.
