Location: Kennedy Centre, NYC, David Geffen Hall

The Global Academy of the West works with the NY Phil to help string players from Rice University improve their orchestral skills. For the last 2 years, they have included a 2-hour Body Mapping workshop in their curriculum. The presentations include highlights from the full WEM Course such as how to move in ways to prevent tendinitis, neck pain, lower back pain etc. We work with individuals and their instruments so the participants leave the workshop feeling confident in how to apply the information in their private practicing. Anatomical models and images are used to retrain movement, senses and attention.
