Andrew Gibbons, Classical Pianist and Feldenkrais Practitioner in New York City, describes the process of discovering whole body awareness from a Feldenkrais perspective and how to produce better musical sound by finding greater skeletal support in sitting.
This video offers a mini-demonstration of key principles to be aware of in sitting that will give lightness to your arms and hands. These key principles can be applied to more than just playing piano or using a musical instrument, but in any with any endeavour that requires sitting and needing the use of your hands (computer use, driving, knitting, writing...etc.)
We will be documenting Moshe Feldenkrais' legacy by posing questions about various foundations, principles and key lectures that have greatly formed how practitioners work with clients.
Our focus will be to interview those that attended his main trainings in Israel and the United States, as well as those who are actively pursuing and practicing his work. This clip is of Sheryl Field, assistant trainer, speaking in reference to Moshe's classic lecture from his last professional teacher training in Amherst, Massachusetts titled: "To correct is incorrect."
