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.
