Last week, I taught two workshops for musicians – one for a great group of string players at Northern Kentucky University, and another for the East Metro Symphony Orchestra, a community orchestra in the Twin Cities. What fun! 🙂
We talked about many of the common problems musicians have (physical, mental, emotional), and how important it is for each of us to realize that every single thought we have is translated by the body into relative tension or relative ease – which either makes things we do more difficult or more effortless.
Do you wish you had more ease in your life, and more effortlessness in your music-making?
The key is to experience more ease is to get curious about the ease in your body, and then to apply this easing, or flow, to your various activities.
Because what you think IS what you get, and what you focus on, you get more of. Every time. Whether you’re aware of it or not…which is why we need to increase our awareness so we can make better choices!
One thing I teach in The Musician’s Advantage™ classes is how to incorporate that quality of attention and awareness of ease in your body into how you play your musical instrument…how you practice…how you perform.
There are endless specific ways to do this, and they all require curiosity… and practice! Because coordinating your mind and body to carry out your precise wishes with ease is a skill – perhaps the most valuable one of all.
Curious about how you can learn to enjoy more ease and flow in your music-making, while also bringing more ease and joy into your life?
