Brief Description of Event:
This 5-session course offers an introduction to the somatic method of Body Mapping. Body Mapping provides accurate anatomical information about the body related to movement; we can learn to correct or refine our personal body map in order to improve/enhance our coordination. Anita will also show how movement choices can be put into direct relation to the structure of the music.The course is highly interactive, combining presentation, performance of illustrative excerpts at the piano, and movement explorations by the participants. NOTE: The course is taught in relation to playing the piano. However, the information and principles learned can be applied to any performance medium so any performer interested in Body Mapping and improving overall coordination is welcome to join. Please follow the link below to access session topics and content. The course will be recorded so registrants unable to attend live sessions may view them at another time.
