Professional Development

Alumni Workshares

Once a term alumni and training course teachers get together at LCATT to share work and sometimes there is a presentation. This not only offers the opportunity for graduates to work with each other but keeps the contact with fellow teachers so that they may set up their own opportunities to exchange work.

Workshares for All Teachers

Next work exchange – to be announced.  – Free.
All teachers are welcome to the workshares at LCATT. You can just drop in or contact Roger – kidd.roger@gmail.com for more details.

‘INTERESTING TALKS’

LCATT has begun to host a series of interesting talks linking with other disciplines. They have been really successful so far, so do come and join us for the next one.


We have had a wonderful talk by Leon Baugh on the Anatomy in Motion system and, last term, one on “How the Mind changes the Body ” by Colin Farquharson, voice and acting coach.

The fourth Interesting Talk at LCATT will be by Emma Alter – An Introduction to Feldenkrais. 26th October 2017. Teachers’ workshare from 7pm and talk 8.30 to 10pm.  £10 teachers £5 students.  Contact judithkleinman@gmail.com or just turn up.

Emma has been performing, with English Baroque Soloists, Academy of Ancient Music, Gabrieli Consort and Players. After having Feldenkrais lessons, she could play without pain and with greater facility. She then went on to train as a Feldenkrais practitioner. Emma works, in groups or individually, with musicians and singers to improve performance, to harness more power, and to suffer less pain. She teaches violin and viola, includes Feldenkrais in her pedagogic approach, and teaches body awareness, posture and ‘set-up’ to string players. For over 20 years, Emma has been teaching children music, and now adds Feldenkrais to this.
