Video series: Feldenkrais Method for Singers [via Chorus America]

Posted: October 21, 2012 in technique, video

My technology-enabled, singing-related activity for yesterday was to watch Chorus America‘s Feldenkrais Method for Singers video series, where practitioner Karen Clark gives a basic introduction to Feldenkrais.  I actually have very little familiarity with body work other than one “Yoga for Singers” session I did a few years ago, and I know nothing about Feldenkrais, so I thought I would check it out.  About half of the videos (marked “$”) are behind Chorus America’s subscription paywall so I couldn’t access them, but I watched the rest:

 

Episode 1 was a lecture-style introduction.  The remainder of the episodes feature Karen working with a student.

With this cursory introduction, I’m still not I sure I totally get what Feldenkrais is about, but I did pick up some body-awareness exercises to try while singing.
