Body mapping is the conscious correcting of one’s body map to produce efficient, coordinated and effective movement that allows musicians to play and sing with greater facility while remaining free from injury. Music educators can use the principles of body mapping to guide their students into accurate and efficient movements. This session will introduce music educators of all levels to the basics of body mapping and provide time for teachers to explore their own body maps and discuss practical applications of this information in their own classrooms.
Date: June 14 – 15, 2017 – 9:00 am to 4:30 pm each day
