June 10 to 12: Alexander Technique Workshops at the Peak Performance Horn Symposium at Northwestern University

John Henes will be teaching Alexander Technique workshops at the Peak Performance Horn Symposium at Northwestern University, June 10 to 12.

The Peak Performance Horn Symposium is an intensive three-day program and will feature master classes and recitals given by Gail Williams, Jon Boen and Sarah Willis and a series of workshops focused on the elements of achieving a peak performance. Other workshops will include a discussion of music fundamentals (Intonation and Rhythm), practicing techniques, phrasing, sports psychology, posture and more. John Henes' Alexander Technique workshops are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday mornings, June 11 and 12, and he will participate in the final Q&A session Sunday afternoon.

The symposium is designed to be relevant to both music students and professionals with a special focus for teachers on how to incorporate these elements into their own teaching. The symposium will be relevant not only to horn players, but to other brass players and musicians as well.
