For Pianists and ANYONE who sits and uses their arms and hands

Andrew Gibbons, Classical Pianist and Feldenkrais Practitioner in New York City, describes the process of discovering whole body awareness from a Feldenkrais perspective and how to produce better musical sound by finding greater skeletal support in sitting. This video offers a mini-demonstration of key principles to be aware of in sitting that will give lightness to your arms and hands. These key principles can be applied to more than just playing piano or using a musical instrument, but in any with any endeavour that requires sitting and needing the use of your hands (computer use, driving, knitting, writing…etc.)

This little clip is part of a project titled “The Next 25 Years“, which is dedicated to creating educational media on The Feldenkrais Method.

Thanks for watching and reading, Irene.
