2x4 hours Timani workshops in Copenhagen

Shoulders and neck - stability, ease and breath 

4 Hour workshop in Timani

Place: Copenhagen

Time: Saturday 26 august 11 - 15

Price: €60 / DKK446 pr workshop

€90/DKK670 for both workshops combined 

Teacher: Miriam Hlavaty

Most musicians experience stiff shoulders and tension or pain in the shoulders, neck and arms. We are told to "lower our shoulders", to "relax", to straighten our shoulders or pull our shoulders back. Most of these instructions are based on copying how something looks from the outside. However, when playing an instrument we are more interested in how something functions. In this workshop you will learn about the anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulders, and which muscles that needs to be working and which who needs to relax in order to have a natural and healthy technique.

This 4 hour workshop includes

  • how the muscles in the shoulder can affect your timbre.
  • how the muscles of the shoulder can affect your breath.
  • exercises in order to enhance coordination in the shoulders
  • how the rest of the body can help in relieving the shoulders of some of their work
  • how the position of the scapula or shoulder blade is decisive in order to have a stable foundation and thereby a free arm.

Sitting - balance, stability, support and flow 

4 Hour workshop in Timani

Place: Copenhagen

Time: Friday 25 august 16 - 20

Price: €60 / DKK446 pr workshop

€90/DKK670 for both workshops combined  

Teacher: Miriam Hlavaty

In this workshop you will learn how to use your sitting in a way that can be supportive rather than straining for your body while playing. You will also learn how to use your sitting actively to support and enhance your musical intention and expression.

What does it mean to "sit well"? When we sit our pelvis is the foundation upon which the rest of our body is balancing. Therefor how we position it and how we use the different muscles around it affects the functionality of our upper body, shoulders, arms and fingers. There are a lot of myths regarding what it means to sit correctly. We are told to sit up straight, to sit in a relaxed way, to feel ourselves grounded. In this workshop you will be given a clearer understanding of how to sit in a way which, biomechanically and anatomically, gives your body the best working conditions for playing your instrument. This 4 hours workshop includes:

  • Which muscles that needs to be active and which needs to relax in order to have a solid foundation for the rest of your body.
  • How the way you sit affects your breath.
  • How the way you sit affects the mobility of your shoulders.
  • What type of chairs are best suited for a musician and how to adjust the chair to give you the support you need.
  • How the way you are sitting could be a contributing factor if you are experiencing some reoccurring, tensional problems in your shoulders and arms.
The course will be held in English

Introductory course in Timani for musicians

Teacher: 

Miriam Hlavaty 

Timani helps you access and optimize the finely tuned coordination needed to perform music with the body and the mind as active and conscious helpers.

This course will leave you with a clearer understanding of subjects such as technique, sound, power and relaxation. You will receive theoretical knowledge of relevant anatomy, neurology and functionality pertaining to playing/singing and learn how to apply this knowledge in order to attain more as a musician. This knowledge is also highly useful in order to avoid or alleviate strain injuries related to playing/singing.

The course offers the chance of connecting theory and exercises through playing, which enables you to become independent in creating your own development. By mastering new parts of the body you will be surprised and inspired by the immediate effect on playing your instrument!

The course is open to anyone who wants to develop as a musician and/or music teacher.

Timani - Presence and interoception: Tools for achieving authenticity and enhanced physical coordination in students of music

Presentation at The Performers(') Present symposium at the Yong Siew Toh conservatory in Singapore

Students of classical music have multiple challenges on their way to a professional career: mastering their instruments on a high technical and artistic level and the ability to bring this mastery into the space of public performance under the heightened mental and psychological pressure which that situation brings. Throughout this process the student also needs to retain and enhance his or her own musical authenticity and finally: train their ability to stay in contact with this during performance as well as in the practice room. 

To meet these challenges students who aim for a career within professional music need specific  tools to cope with physical as well as mental and psychological challenges. In this situation the role of the teacher is also vital.  

When we talk of the quality of a teacher what is usually meant is his or her technical or musical abilities and brilliance, what is often less emphasized is the importance of the specific state of presence from which the teacher instructs, and how this might impact the student, both physically and psychologically, and the tuition in general. 

Timani is a new approach to vocal and instrumental performance where presence is viewed as a central aspect of teaching, playing and performance. This lecture is about why we need to include "presence" as part of our practice routine as well as in our performance, why “presence” as a state of awareness is intimately linked with the term interoception which, in turn is a pre-requisite for increased physical  coordination, control and technical mastery of our main instrument- the body. 

And finally: why a well- developed sense of interoception and teaching from a state of presence is essential for any teacher who wishes to encourage authenticity is his/her students.
