I hope , I urge all female violinists and viola players to take up Kristin Mozeiko`s fantastic offer in her blog (research Participants needed). I went to her web site to see how many free lessons she was actually offering . I know it almost always takes a minimum of ten for people to begin getting the hang of AT and what it is about. I couldn`t believe it when I read she is going to offer twenty, and twice a week to boot... It`s the chance of a lifetime.
Get signed up now.
Good on yer, Kristin.
This is probably ever the only time I will say that I wish I was a female. :(
Yes you are right! I sent her an email with a little description of my situation. However I am not sure if she wants a "busy (with non violin stuff also) but passionnated amateur that happens to have "natural" annoying tension because of physionomy issues even if very conscious of it. " I am afraid I am not suited for such studies but who knows if ever she wants violinists of all situations (amateurs, professionnals, busy people etc) I'll see this in her answer!
Yes, what a kind offer!!!
lol Dimitri !!! I love to be a female and wouldn't change but I find life is a little more complicated (even when we don't want I swear) and maybe not always fair for us!!! Am I wrong? Well, completely off topic. May we keep the wonderful topic of this thread!!! But if you insist, put a wig and take a pic, she'll maybe take you... (just joking!!!)
I'm the right gender, but too old :(
However, I will add my support to the idea that Alexander Technique can be a great help for back and neck pain due to tension. I took some Alexander lessons on my own about 15 years ago that made a big difference.
Wow! what an offer! Like Buri said, for those of you who can Go For It!!!!!
Thank you Buri and all for the endorsement. I still need (at least) 40 more female violinists/violists (18-25) living in the NYC area. I am being supported by 8 other wonderful Alexander teachers located in diferent areas of the city to in order to geographically match students with the teachers. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my website www.AlexanderTechniqueBrooklyn.com for the official advertisement.
Thanks again for passing the word along and (for those who are interested) I will keep you updated on the research and results. (I will accept up to 70 participants-35 control group/35 experimental group)-The control will also get 2 free lessons after the study is complete, the experimental group will receive two 30 minute lessons a week for 10 weeks-YES 20 FREE LESSONS.
Dang--I'm too old *and* live in the wrong Manhattan. :(
