"The more ease in the movement, the more resonance in the sound"

Resonance Training is a work about musical movement from a musical-artistic point of view, founded over 25 years ago by violinist Thomas Lange.

It gives musicians the tools to expand their sound quality and to use their own body for the purpose of resonance. This leads to a more open and full sound, a freedom from tension and a greater contact to the instrument, the accoustic space and the audience.

"What fascinates me most about Resonance Training is the connection between music and the body, and the practical approach during the sessions.

Maria has great empathy and is able to convery the concepts of Resonance Training in a very clear way. Every musician, either student or professional, can profit from the possibilities of this work, in respect to pressure, performance anxiety and mastering the daily routine of a musician.”
Wolfgang Heinz, conductor, Stuttgart Ballet

How does Reasonance Training work?

Resonance Training understands sound and movement as a unity. Thus, we compare the movement with the quality of sound and look where we can introduce changes to favour the resonance and ease of movement.

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

The quality of your sound depends on your physical shape

If you've played a whole concert programme or even a tour, you will 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 sesitivity. We need, thus, a muscular tone that will allow us to generate and release tension at will, with the greatest ease possible.

Body exercises of Resonance Training are there to develop this kind of ease, while at the same time raising the quality of your sound. Having the body available in this form, makes for shorter and more effective study sessions - you achieve your goals in less time.

I've been working for some time on the body exercises of Resonance Training in my daily routine, and now I feel more consicous of my body and my sound has improved immensely. Just to begin with, it's more free and flexible than before, thanks to the feeling of freedom in the upper part of my body. Also, I feel more capable and calm in my ability to introduce changes when I need to.
