dc.descriptionViolin playing is achieved through complex movements. Violinists depend on their bodies to do repetitive motions, yet many violin teachers do not give enough attention to the movement components of music making. Suzuki violin teachers often start teaching their students at a very young age, and continue to teach them through their high school years. Suzuki violin teachers have a large impact on their students’ playing and have the opportunity to make sure that there is ease and freedom in their students’ technique. For many, repetitive motions can take a toll on bodies and cause aches and pains. Statistics from numerous studies indicate that musicians have a significant risk of suffering an injury from playing their instrument. (Bosi, 2017) Why do these pains occur and how can we prevent them? The Alexander Technique and Body Mapping principles offer an explanation of why they occur, and a way to prevent or cure those pains.en_US
