Burton Kaplan Presents: THE MUSICAL PATH TO TECHNIQUE: Design of the Heart
Ithaca College School of Music, Ithaca, NY 14850
Do you have any of these experiences when you practice your instrument?
There are NEW solutions for each of these problems. In the workshop you’ll observe the actual process of practicing as musicians try out new strategies to attach their musical imagination to their technique. You’ll be privy to a new way of conceiving and processing musical notation which enables technique to evolve into a structurally sensible and emotionally compelling sound. AND, you’ll be shown specific ways to increase the control of your fingers, breath and articulation to coordinate at faster tempos, play more in tune and communicate more effectively. In addition, I’ll introduce you to your Third Hand – the source of your power to coordinate your muscles and your emotions to create music that compels the attention of the audience.
