Resonance Training is an approach to movement from a musical-artistic perspective, founded 27 years ago by German violinist Thomas Lange.
“The more ease in the movement, the more resonant the sound”, is the basis of this work.
Resonance Training gives you the tools to amplify your quality of sound and use your body as an essential factor of your resonance. This leads to a more open, resonant, and full sound, free of tensions, and to more contact with the instrument, the acoustic space and the audience.
This work is for musicians of all instruments, including singing and conducting, instrument and singing teachers, and music students.

If you've played a whole concert programme or even a tour, you know that as musicians we need strength and stamina to do our work. At the same time, we are expressive artists, i.e. our most important tool is our great sensitivity. We need, thus, a physical disposition that will allow us to generate and release tension at will, with the greatest ease possible.
Body movements of Resonance Training enable you to develop this kind of elastic movement you're looking for, while at the same time raising the quality of your sound. Having the body available in this form makes not only for shorter and more effective study sessions - you achieve your goals in less time - but also allows you to discover a deeper physical opening, the space where anything is possible...
