Awareness Through Movement for children
Strategies from the Feldenkrais Method employed in coaching junior singers and instrumentalists by Anita Morrison, soprano and singing teacher and
Josephine Horder, cellist and cello teacher.
Bringing together their experience of teaching young singers and instrumentalists with the principles behind Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration, Anita and Jo have developed playful child-centered strategies to improve dynamic posture and enhance ease and efficiency of movement in music making and performance.
