«The awakening of the inner sound, spring music!»

When spring approaches, it is quiet, you can smell it and the buds reveal the hidden potential that lies within them. In this course we dedicate ourselves to the delicate potential of our inner sounds, which we coax out by listening in order to express them vocally, instrumentally and physically. When the sounds awaken in this way, solos, duets and entire symphonies of interaction emerge, which are, as always, unique in improvisation.


This 5-day seminar is designed for anyone interested in music who would like to explore this theme, among others.  The course can be attended on its own and is taught through the holistic approach of Music for People. It will be fully credited for MLP continuing education participants. Previous musical experience is welcome, but not required. 


The course will be facilitated by Mary Knysh and Alexander Merz. Both are experienced Music for People instructors and have been working intensively for years on how to teach music improvisation.


In addition to co-leading, Anna Eichenberger is responsible for the administration and accompanies continuing education participants. She has been part of the teaching team since 2018.
