Playing Without Pain for Flutists

-Integrating Wellness Habits and Preventing Injury-

with Francesca Leo



Taking good care of your mental and physical health is just as important as practicing your instrument. Various studies have demonstrated that the vast majority of musicians develop some type of performance-related injury throughout their careers. Flutists are uniquely vulnerable to developing performance-related injuries due to the asymmetrical nature of their instruments. Join Francesca Leo, flutist and founder of http://www.playingwithoutpain.com, in an interactive workshop discussing various methods of activating the body's relaxation response, practicing efficiently, and incorporating a physical warm-up into your practice sessions as a way to help prevent injury. During this workshop, Francesca will be discussing a brief overview of statistics and research regarding the prevalence of performance-related injuries in flutists. She will lead participants through a guided meditation and a body scan exercise followed by an improvisationally-based warm-up routine to activate the relaxation response and learn to begin your practice session with ease and freedom. For this online workshop, the audience will need their flute, a pillow or blanket, and a comfortable place to sit or lie down.

 11:00-11:50 AM

A Guide to Performing Extended Techniques

in George Crumb's "Vox Balaenae"

with Hristina Blagoeva



In this presentation Dr. Blagoeva will begin in an interactive fashion by teaching and demonstrating the wide variety of extended techniques available to the modern flutist and used in 20th century flute repertoire. Then, some of these techniques will be shown as they appear in George Crumb's 'Vox Balaenae'. Showcasing the many roles that the flute can play within a single work, the lecture will conclude by showing how extended techniques help define the structure of 'Vox Balaenae' and create the programmatic atmosphere of the work.

Demystifying Breathing and Tonguing

with Anna K. Meyer


Have you ever wondered what is actually going on inside you when you breathe in and out? How does knowing more about our bodies help us to be better breathers? Using horn player Sarah Willis' incredible MRI footage, we will explore the physicality of breathing and tonguing and try to understand some of the things that hold us back as we inhale, exhale, and work on our tonguing.
