Optimal Moves for Musicians: Two Day Advanced Training

"How To Understand and Work Effectively with Musicians"
Presented by Mary Spire

In this two day advanced training you will learn skills specific to understanding and  helping musicians improve their performance.  You will fine-tune your ability to sense and feel, and imagine what it is to be a musician -a day in the life of a musician. You will learn to" pinpoint" what the student isn't aware of, or what he isn't doing yet- and provide him with relevant information to improve his performance skills and enjoy a full, pain-free and long career in music.
We will use dynamic, dramatic and effective  ATM and FI lessons, designed especially  for musicians; FI and ATM demonstrations with musicians playing their instruments; and video case histories. If you are a musician, bring your instrument!
