Individual artistic instruction is a field of tension between professionalism, personal involvement and relationship. The scope and limits of what still belongs in the classroom and what impedes or even “blows up” the classroom have to be illuminated and explored again and again. It is crucial to know what teachers consider to be part of their teaching, how to react to it appropriately, and what they can refer to beyond their own teaching within the university. With this in mind, in this workshop you will:

It is not about having a Stradivarius, but about becoming one … Learning the alexander technique is comparable to learning a musical instrument – the only difference is that we ourselves are the instrument – with all our levels – with our “psycho-physical unity”, as F.M. Alexander called it. People who have experienced the alexander technique describe the effect as follows: More freedom and lightness, more resilient, freer flow of breath, greater joy in life. Therefore, AT offers an ideal basis especially for the musician’s profession. Musicians report that pain goes away, they discover new sound qualities, find more inner peace and have greater joy on the podium. This workshop addresses those who want to get to know the AT as well as those who want to deepen their AT experience.

Where words are sometimes unsuccessful, it may be useful to use touch to help. This requires touching in music education be placed in a professional context. In contrast to the private sphere, where no one thinks long and hard about how to touch another person, in music class it is not natural to interpret a touch as intended. Touching in a professional context can be learned, and so there will be a lot of practical work in the workshop in groups of two. In this way, it is experienced how it feels to be touched and how a good quality and unambiguous touch can be applied.
