Join me for the “What Every Musician Needs to Know About the Body” course combined with movement and music-making.  This course is for performers and teachers alike who will gain valuable insights and tools to take into playing and teaching.  Participants will experience how movement is the foundation for playing and understand how the body is designed to move.  This information contributes to reliable technique, a full sound and, expression and is a powerful response to nerves.

Topics covered include:

  • Cultivating awareness of our movement and attention, and how they affect one another
  • Discovering and rediscovering our center of support and whole system balance
  • Mapping and movement of our torso and spine

Asia and Australia

Australian Society for Teachers of the Alexander Technique (AUSTAT) Conference presentation
Location: Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), Melbourne.
Date/Time: Sunday, 6th October, 2019.
Event For: Jane Shellshear

FM Meets Body Mapping

What if FM Alexander himself had been able to seek help for his vocal problem with a Body Mapping teacher? In this workshop we’ll be using FM’s own words in Use of the Self to illustrate how to identify and address some of the mismapping he was experiencing. And by extension, many of the most common mismaps that interfere with giving direction and experiencing easier movement.


Australian Society for Performing Arts Health(ASPAH) Conference: ‘Lasting the Distance – A lifetime in the Performing Arts’
Location: Arts Centre Melbourne
Date/Time: November 30 to December 1, 2019.
Event For: Jane Shellshear

WORKSHOP TITLE: Connecting with your blueprint for movement

PURPOSE: Methods to integrate correct anatomical concepts into kinaesthetic sensing and moving strategies are required in order to realise intended design function. Mapping the structures of the ‘hand’ in this session demonstrates this process as it operates throughout the body. Participants experience changes in movement quality due to new embodied understandings of structural design and are able to assess impact on movement health, performance and wellbeing.

APPROACH: Guided methods of investigation including observation, palpation, movement experiments and tactile exploration of anatomical models.
