Creating the Virtuous Circle
Musical expression and physical freedom, ease and presence as the goal of practicing
by Amy Likar
Through working with and practicing Body Mapping and the Alexander Technique for over 29 years now and I have become firmly convinced that musical intention helps free the body and a free body helps free musical intention. Organizing ourselves physically to create musical expression facilitates an easier process in the practice room. Clear understanding of the body in motion leads to a more expressive approach to music making.
