Welcome to my blog!
I’ll be posting articles, musings, and other tidbits relating to the work I do.
So, why “Sound Direction?”
I think of each of the disciplines in which I work as a pillar supporting a roof, or a spoke of an umbrella. My Alexander Technique teaching informs my conducting and my composing, my experiences as a singer influence my perspective on working with Alexander Technique students, my choral, classroom, and voice teaching experience support my workshops. I was struck by the multiple definitions of the two words, and their many intersections:
- reliable, secure, in good condition, healthy, robust
- the sensation produced by stimulation of the organs of hearing; a noise, vocalization, musical tone
- to determine the depth of some thing
- the path or course along which something is moving or pointing
- the art and technique of directing (conducting) a musical ensemble
- (Alexander Technique) the act of choosing new ways to coordinate thought and movement
So, sound the depths of your own direction: come explore the many directions of sound, or perhaps the soundness of directing, and get moving in a sound direction with lessons or a Sound Direction workshop.
