Uncovering the intimate relationship between the best musical expression and movement is Vanessa Breault Mulvey’s mission. A Licensed Andover Educator, she utilizes Body Mapping along with experience in Pilates, Feldenkrais, flying trapeze and restorative exercise to guide musicians to uncover their expressive voice, as they eliminate playing limitation and pain.

In 2012 she founded Flying Flutistas with Lynne Krayer-Luke. The duo recognized the trapeze rig was the perfect place to analyze the learning process, learn more about how the body is designed to move, and find real-world strategies for dealing with fear. The Flutistas perform and create music that reaches beyond what audiences expect from two classically-trained flutists. Read more at

In addition to working with musicians, she has a special interest in applying Body Mapping to fitness. She is working on a developing a playful movement workshop for musicians to restore energy through movement, and co-teaches an anatomy infused Pilates class. Ms. Mulvey is on the faculty at Longy School of Music of Bard College, where she teaches a popular Body Mapping course and the Poised Performer Workshop.

I'm Impressed!

"Thanks for the excellent introduction to Body Mapping. I'm impressed with how you have your material and message put together. I appreciated how you wove together your presentation with opportunities for the students to try things out and then to ask voice related questions and try techniques toward the end of class. The material is so pedagogically rich."
