Control is as important to the musician as it is to the athlete. Musicians are athletes. David and Anna return to lead their unique course in the 2017 programme following a successful Benslow Music debut in 2016. You will be assessed and guided towards your ideal static and dynamic postures, which will then be related to and integrated with your playing. Generic as well as individually tailored exercises will be taught, with the objective of maintaining appropriate postural and movement skills. Your customised programme will improve postural awareness to help potentially alleviate any current aches and pains and prevent new ones starting up, promote greater ease in playing and enhance performance by improving tone quality, technical facility, stamina, confidence and communication. There will be opportunities for solo and ensemble playing. All participants will receive a video diary of their individual sessions. Over the last 10 years David and Anna have pioneered a method of teaching musicians by combining the individual skills off the musical and physical specialist, a model now routinely available to elite performers in other disciplines.
