Thanks for mentioning my post! Very cool blog--I will be sure to check out your podcast as well. The orchestra player quote you opened the post with in unfortunately a common attitude among musicians, and I hope that more folks continue to turn to Feldenkrais for better posture and to improve their playing experience. I'll look forward to your upcoming post on Arnold Jacobs (I've got his book on my shelf and frequently refer to it, despite being a string player).

Reading List

  • Brian Frederiksen: Arnold Jacobs: Song and Wind
    Part biography and part description of Jacob's teaching philosophy and teaching wisdom. I refer to this book when preparing breathing lessons for musicians.
  • Sam Pilafian & Patrick Seridan: Breathing Gym, The
    Interesting and useful breathing exercises. Some of the exercises may need to be modified for younger students.
  • Oliver Sachs: Musicophillia
    Enjoyable read on neurology and music.
  • Kristian Steenstrup: Teaching Brass, 2nd revised edition
    An Interesting read on the theory of playing and teaching brass. I found this book to be helpful in understanding things I already sensed, had been taught and discovered for myself. Includes interesting info on the teaching of Arnold Jacobs.
