Windswept Creative Motion Conference 2018 Detailed Conference Information
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Join us for a week of Creative Motion study in which participants discover how the body responds to music and how that response shapes our experiences of listening and performing. The intergenerational Creative Motion Class is the touchstone of our teaching. In it, you will engage in holistic approaches to musical concepts, such as rhythm, melody, harmony, phrase, and texture. Body tuning exercises in the Creative Motion Class, as well as in Qigong classes, will help you find a balance that enhances musical experience. The conference day includes Choir, Bach Chorales, Master Classes, Expressive Arts, and classes in which Creative Motion concepts are applied to piano, voice, instrumental playing, and music education. In addition, there are opportunities for private or small group lessons.
