Andover Educators

Bodymap.org is the home of Andover Educators, a not for profit organization of music educators committed to saving, securing, and enhancing musical careers by providing accurate information about the body in movement. Andover Educators use an innovative and specific technique called Body Mapping to enhance musicians’ abilities and to help those in pain or discomfort. Clear, concise, and practical information about how the body moves in order to make music is presented in the course “What Every Musician Needs to Know About the Body” or you can learn more about Body Mapping in private lessons with an Andover Educator.

Andover Educators train musicians and music educators to accurately support and enhance movement in practice and performance with the goal of increasing ease while reducing and eliminating injury. Andover Educators teach in colleges, universities, conservatories, and private studios throughout the world and offer professional development workshops for musicians and music educators.

All Andover Educators are musicians dedicated to helping other musicians and understand the struggles, both physical and mental, that musicians face in their careers. It is the hope of Andover Educators that this method of teaching will encourage wellness and enhanced performance among musicians.
