Mapping the Arms

Not sure how to help your student or child who is uncomfortable at the instrument? Do you suffer from limitation or poor coordination at the instrument?

Building from last years workshop, we will delve further into detailed exploration of healthy arm movement. Designed for both attendees from last year and those new to body mapping, this years workshop will be most practical as we try on movements at our instruments. Using new video & images, anatomical models, and guided movement, we will explore how to find ‘neutral’ relationships at arm joints and how to move from there with buoyancy and ease. If you’ve ever wondered what it may mean to “play from your back” or how to assess whether an arm or joint is too high or too low, this workshop is for you.

Mapping is a specific technique used by licensed Andover Educators to help musicians recognize the source of harmful movement, and to replace it with movement that is free and based on the truth of our anatomical structure. This technique is informed by the latest neuroscience about how the brain produces movement, and has helped hundreds of musicians play with more ease and heal themselves of injury and pain.
