"I first heard about Joseph Arnold through another teacher, and became quite fascinated after a visit to the Soulforce Music School's website. As a lifelong student of music, I have had several teachers and while some emphasized the importance of relaxation none offered much more or any guidance or tools on how to bring that to my music studies. As I'm sure many musicians can relate, practice and performance can bring a lot of stress and anxiety to the body, and I hardly realized how much until I deepened my attention with Joseph's guidance and lessons. 

"Studying with Joseph has brought me a deeper awareness of just how much tension shows up in my body as I practice, perform, and do just about anything! But using the tools offered in our lessons I am able to notice and approach practice, playing, listening with less tension and more ease. Although I still notice tension as an implicit response I have when approaching music at times, I am empowered with the ability to notice and respond with ease. Being able to break down each movement or action into "critical moments" has really transformed my relationship with practicing music. Even simply knowing that there is a way to play with more ease and flow brings me closer to a more free and engaged relationship with music.

"I cannot recommend studying with Joseph enough. The tools and practices that he offers are transformative and can certainly liberate any musician or individual, regardless of where they may be on their journey. Anyone looking to soften their relationship with tension and bring more ease to their life will benefit from the tools and practices offered by Joseph. I am certain I will be using these practices and tools for years to come and connect with music and my body more freely and openly. I am very grateful for the lessons I've learned with Joseph."

THE MUSICAL BODY

Alexander Technique for Effortless Performance

Imagine the best performance of your life: You’re totally in control, in a state of flow, deeply connected to your craft. You might call it a state of “effortless mastery.” When it happens, it’s amazing - so why can’t we summon it on command?
 
We can.  The key is getting out of your own way -  noticing the patterns of thought, emotion, and movement that increase stress, and then practicing new patterns that create ease and productive focus.

Learn to cultivate “effortless mastery” using the Alexander Technique, a 100-year-old holistic system of body awareness and movement re-education.  “Effortlessness” practices, hands-on movement explorations, and insights into stress management will be featured. Participants are invited to bring their instruments or other tools used in practicing their craft.

THE AWAKENED BODY

The Alexander Technique for Mindfulness Practice

We meditate for many reasons: to reduce stress, raise self-awareness and acceptance, discover new levels of connection and consciousness. Yet in our practice of “mindfulness,” we often forget the crucial role of the body in experiencing  personal growth, connection, and insight - both on the cushion and in everyday life.

Individual or group lessons will introduce you to the Alexander Technique, a 100-year-old holistic system of body awareness and movement re-education.  Hands-on movement explorations, body-based guided meditations, and practical tips will help you to find the balance of awareness and relaxation so that you can meditate with more comfort and advance your practice.

Through his thoughtful and patient practice, Joseph Arnold has helped me to discover an awareness of my physical self and its interconnectedness to all parts of my life and well-being.  Through this awareness, the smallest subtleties have empowered positive and profound changes in not only my physical health as a performer, but also my musicality and emotional well-being.  Alexander Technique has been an integral part of my growth as both a person and artist, and I owe this to Joseph Arnold's wisdom and guidance.
