Lisa in consultation with studentPrivate Lessons

Available on a consultation basis, Lisa Marsh works with injured musicians in a private lesson setting to help them gain awareness of their body and retrain their movements to reduce strain and fatigue. Lessons include technique from an anatomical perspective, interpreting the score with maximum physical freedom, how to practice effectively, developing memorization strategies, preparing for performances, improvisation as a tool for discovering the body's natural movements, and developing a healthy lifestyle.
