Alan Fraser holds a special seminar at the Chava Shelav Feldenkrais Center (just east of Cologne) September 29 - October 1 2017.
It is open to all musicians, not only pianists, and non-musician practitioners as well. The weekend explores how the
principles of Feldenkrais can be applied in a performance situation for immediate improvement and transformation of one's
sound and one's entire sense of musicianship.
The three days alternate group Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons specially oriented towards the performance needs
of musicians, with hands-on work by Professor Fraser at the piano or the person's instrument. This course has also been
popular with Feldenkrais practitioners who may not play an instrument themselves, but who are seeking new, effective ways
of working with musicians.
