Karen Tuttle Viola Seminar
This intense seminar taught by Professor Sheila Browne, a former Tuttle student, will introduce students to Karen Tuttle's (1920-2010) Coordination system.
The Coordination system's healthy approach to playing includes balancing the instrument, stance, and body awareness, leading to ease and comfort, resulting in a beautiful, resonant sound, more facile technique, expressive playing, and reduced stage fright. Left and right hand technique, phrasing, pacing, character and musical expression, among other things, are also addressed in coordination.
The seminar is geared to the viola, but other musicians can benefit from the methods.
