The Instrumental Technique and Wellness Workshop is a safe and caring environment and a great place to meet other musicians who share the same concerns and aspirations. These two weekend intensive workshops cover advanced principles of coordination and natural movement for performers of all instruments to enhance sound, avoid pain and injury, and liberate techniques. These movements are essential for rendering technical difficulties manageable, stress free, and even effortless. A highlight will be Anatomy for Musicians. Participants are encouraged to bring excerpts of their challenging passages for the hands-on technique clinic. Instrumentalists may bring their instruments; organ is available with advanced (3-day) notice. Teachers may bring students and go over student repertoire. The principles discussed are useful for students, teachers, and performers at all levels.

Sheila Paige brings over 30 years of experience in the work of Dorothy Taubman and an extensive background in Alexander Technique. She is also a faculty member of the Dorothy Taubman Seminar. Ms. Paige’s reputation as a teacher attracts pianists nationally and she commutes to Pittsburg, Cleveland, Knoxville, Nashville, Memphis, Dallas, Austin, Raleigh and Charlotte to teach on a regular basis. Her students number many university faculty members and performers who have appeared with orchestras including the Vienna Philharmonic, Pittsburgh Symphony and the London Symphony. Conference presentations include Oklahoma Music Teachers, Music Teachers of California, Texas Music Teachers Association, Piano Celebration in CO, and in June 2009 Seminar for Piano Teachers at the University of Oklahoma. An, active performer, Ms. Paige has appeared in recital and with orchestras both locally and nationally. Among her accompanying credits is an appearance at Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center, and her solo performances have been broadcast on National Public Radio.
