Workshop mit Monika Stadler

"Feel it. Listen deeply. Play. Groove! "
(Improvisation, jazz & more)

Workshop for Concert-, Austrian Folk- and Lever harps

The aim of the workshop is to extend the participants' musical horizon and to stimulate their own creativity.

„Get away from sheet music and play your own melodies. Using „learning by doing“ on a one-to-one or group basis with group improvisation, Monika teaches everything from simple tunes up to blues and jazzstandards, a basic knowledge of jazz, improvisation and a variety of rhythmic possibilities.

She will also include Qi-Gong and Kinesiology exercises to bring together the left and right hand sides of the brain. This stimulates the brain but also helps to quiet the mind and relax the body so that creativity and music can start to flow.

It is a joyful and sensuous encounter with music and stillness, mind and body.

Precisely what I teach will depend on the participant's level. What I teach will depend on the participant's level. There will be a continuation of the material taught last time for those who participated in earlier courses.

 

Masterclass: "Individual Creative  Expression"

In this masterclass Monika will show her very individual and personal approach to composition. She will reveal some of her sources of inspiration, how she transforms it into music, and will encourage students to explore their own potential of creativity.

She will also, as in the other workshops, include Qi-Gong and Kinesiology exercises to bring together the left and right hand sides of the brain. This stimulates the brain but also helps to quiet the mind and relax the body so that creativity and music can start to flow more easily.
