Based on the principles of Resonance Training, I draw from my experience as a musician and teacher. Here are a few examples of how this looks like in practice:
A violist learned, through our work together, to dissolve the tension she was feeling in her neck-shoulder area.
A guitarist approached me because he was only playing "for the money" and wasn't feeling the connection to music anymore. He could, in a short period of time, regain his joy for practicing and experience his creative power in his everyday life as a musician.
A young flutist was playing under her capabilities when the stakes were high, i.e. her musicianship was highliy compromised through her stage fright. With our lessons, she learned to perform her best, even under stressful conditions, and finally got accepted to the music university of her choice. Read about our whole process from the first contact until her successful audition here.
I'm regularly invited to give Workshops and Seminars with musical institutions, such as International Federation for Choral Music, Österreichische Gesellschaft für Musik und Medizin, Conservatori Superior de Música de les Illes Balears, Württembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen, Institut für Instrumental- und Gesangspädagogik BTU Cottbus, Mallorca Summer Academy, C. Bechstein Centrum Berlin, DTKV Marburg. Find out more about me here.

"After only one lesson working with Maria I've saved myself countless practice hours." Eulàlia Siquier, clarinet, Palma de Mallorca

"After working with Maria for a short time, I really felt a release of body tension, and the voice suddenly soared effortlessly in difficult passages!" Patricia Holtzmann, soprano, Berlin
"Maria's impulses have stood the test in my ongoing activity frenzy as an orchestra musician: on days with intense rehearsals, meetings and concerts I'm now able to reduce my fatigue enormously." Matthias Buck, violin, Württembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen
