Cello Biomechanics by Marianne Dumas
Cello technique and science
If you continually seek to enhance your ability to express yourself and to discover new sources of inspiration : biomechanics are for you. You will drastically improve your playing and prevent injuries from happening. .
THE HOW AND WHY...
- Heal and prevent injuries.
- understand the use of weight, movement, and tension.
Optimal movement = Optimal playing
If you are dealing with pain or tension, I would never work with you if I don't think I can help you healing. Send me a message and tell me about your injury. Pain is never "in your head". I have worked with cellists dealing with dystonia or major tendinitis. It takes time and commitment but there are solutions, you can heal.
When teaching, I give the "tools" needed to solve technical, musical, or injury problems. I also work on the alliance between the body and the mind to help my students and colleagues connect with their cello so it becomes their voice.
