How the body can support us - and we support it

How the body can support us

We are concerned with the question of how the body can effectively and meaningfully support practice, preferably in the direct linkage of practice. This is not easy to answer: What is very good for one person may not work at all for someone else. Basically, we can say: a moving body supports us!

Link directly to practice

We are concerned with practising in such a way that during the practice (i.e. at the same time!) or in direct connection with the it (e.g. directly before!) the potential of the body is used in such a way that it can support the achievement of new progress in the best possible way.

Our approach is practical: trying things out, observing, changing and adapting are the main focus here. In our approach, we distinguish between three categories, with the knowledge that there cannot be any hair-trigger demarcations. They only serve as a rough orientation and are not yet to be understood as a conclusive naming or enumeration.

  1. Conscious activities: Which consciously executed movements support the practice process?
  2. Evoke: Allowing the "fitness" necessary for making music to improve at the same time
  3. Does good: Supportive things that take the strain off the limbs that are particularly stressed during play.
