connect - explore - resonate

Workshops

Learn in a group of like-minded, awake, resourceful musicians. Connect the dots between what you know and what you do. Awaken your body as a central factor of your sound and your resonance.

Then take everything you learned and apply it to your day-to-day life: performing, teaching, practicing.

Certain things can only be learned in a group. This is your chance.

What does a workshop look like?

We meet for a span of 2 to 6 days.

Each of us brings their instrument, their experiences, their questions.

We move, play and train our awareness to understand coherences which are vital to expand our sound, vital to our well-being on stage and in the practice room.

Then we apply them onto our playing, onto our singing.

Some musicians receive a session in front of the group.

In the case of orchestras or choirs: we experience and apply the principles in the musical action, with or without conductor.

We learn Resonance Training sound movements that were conceived specifically for musicians, to free tensions in the body, open the articulations, facilitate free breathing - ultimately supporting musical expression.

We get curious, play together, improvise together.

And it changes everything.

Voices from workshop participants

"I had no idea how much movement plays a role in the learning process of music, and how big the sound difference could be. The mix of easy and complex, theory and practical was just perfect."

"I was feeling held by the ground and moving freely, and it sounded amazing. Thank you! Also, great atmosphere! Your enthusiasm is catching."

"Thank you for your work with us this past weekend. It was helpful, inspiring, such that I have decided not to step back from my chamber projects, I've changed my mind. I'm looking forward to playing, enjoy practicing again. It's yet another Monday, and yet, everything has changed."

"I'm really doing those exercises you showed us, every day for 15-20 minutes. I'm already noticing a difference in my making changes as I play. When you said that I would need to practice less, I couldn't believe it. It makes so much more sense now."
