- Location 1
Feldenkrais – what is it? “If you know what you are doing, you can do what you want." -- Moshé Feldenkrais Get a brief introduction to body movement lessons that allow one to consciously recognize habitual patterns of motion. A playful, observational approach that results in fine-tuned awareness and a lightness in practicing, music making, learning and thinking that opens more freedom in artistic expression. “Make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and make the easy elegant.” -- Moshé Feldenkrais Master teacher, clinician, pedagogue, and Feldenkrais specialist Gudrun Bär has been the director of her own institute STUDIO GUDRUN BÄR in Weimar, Germany. She works predominantly with professional singers, instrumentalists, and conductors offering private lessons, seminars and masterclasses. Alongside regular Feldenkrais and holistic singing workshops, she hosts a special advanced training program for voice teachers, pedagogues, speech therapists, and musicians called “Netzwerk G:” a seminar cycle comprised of four successive weekend seminars focused on functional voice training, perception, application, and holistic practice in a safe environment where students experiment, build and refine their teaching strategies, tools, and language. Each seminar experience also opens a forum for exchanging ideas and personal experiences with music colleagues. As a singing teacher, Gudrun has performed as a soloist in Europe, the United States, and Israel and presents solo concerts and recitals in Germany. Besides her work in the STUDIO GUDRUN BÄR, she is regularly invited to present master classes throughout Germany and Switzerland and currently serves as a guest vocal coach for the Junges Ensemble at the Semperoper Dresden.
