Additional Schedule Information

In the first day we set the stage for the bodies support of the arm, and will isolate and expand shoulder and elbow anatomy. In the second day we will explore the wrist, hand and thumb, and the implications of the left side for alignment, vibrato, and shifting.

Event Description

My Left Arm is a journey into basic physical anatomy specifically to the movements of the left side. We will cover the many joints of the arm: shoulder, elbow, wrist, thumb and fingers. We will explore overuse injuries and why they may occur, along with implications for alignment ideas, vibrato logistics, and shifting glitches. This discussion will be interactive for the technical concerns for violinists, violists and double bassists. The course is meant to serve as an education understanding of what lies beneath the skin that helps us play our instrument. I hope you’ll join us!

Course full.
