Performance enhancement for all instruments/voice.
Coaching on how to optimize every aspect involved in a balanced, successful and healthy performance. We'll focus on how to achieve a more optimal physical, mental and emotional healthy state unleashing your full performance potential.
You will learn a deeper understanding of the alignment and body workings, tools for optimizing your technique, sound and mental focus, tension and anxiety reduction, neuromuscular reeducation among other triggers involved. As well as how to address the urgent factual need of musician's health and wellbeing, most of all posture and muscle wellness, helping to prevent and reduce unnecessary tension, muscle strain, injuries, stress and general discomfort. Also you'll learn:
- exercises for thorough understanding and conscious assimilation of anatomy and workings of physical mechanisms in order to be as comfortable as possible with our body, instrument and ourselves
-movement study, exploring how the usage of direction and energy, rather than muscular force, will have its greatest implications on our sound production and performance
-how to enjoy any performance and life itself regardless of its end by discovering all the choices we have at the tip of our fingers as staying in present, managing our timing, analyzing all the consequences without judgment and without anticipation of the results of the action (avoiding negative emotions)
I'm a professional violinist, innovative pedagogue and Tango expert.
My aim is to provide you with a pleasant, high quality learning experience, developing a healthy and happy relationship with the violin so that you can enjoy and express yourself through music.
I'm passionate about every one of my activities as they were born as a result of my wide experience as a multicultural musician - born and raised in Ukraine (Artist Diploma), having lived and studied in Argentina (B.A.&M.M.) and also in United States (Certificate in Performance, DePaul Univ., Chicago). Despite being familiar with so many fruitful and different methodologies, my search for freedom of expression found its way just when my need of feeling completely comfortable with the violin was finally satisfied. Though, I've developed my own methodology, combining the means offered by the finest violin schools and all the alternative, related disciplines such as Alexander Technique, Yoga, and Meditation working all together towards the importance of knowledge of our body, awareness of the self, need for enjoyment and educational relationship centered on student needs.
I'm confident I can help to optimize and benefit your performance, health, wellbeing as well as teaching skills by integrating body, mind, emotions and instrument into one - a balanced and fulfilled artist.
