Description

In this course, students explore wellness practices that help nurture the potential for inspiration in performance. The course is both a laboratory for stepping out of the box with confidence in performance and a study of established wellness techniques. Students learn practice and wellness; how to demystify improvisation; they explore the science of sound impact on the body and they learn theories and practices of healthy performance. Students explore the following topics: embodying rhythm; authentically connecting with an audience; overcoming performance anxiety; and relaxing using Reiki, toning, and other forms of musical self-care. Students also develop skills that will enable them to explore the sources of their inspiration and creative expression.
