Our ukulele lessons emphasize body and mind self-awareness through the development of tension management, tactical awareness, emotional intelligence and expression, and musical vulnerability.
Our guitar lessons foster an awareness of when and where your body holds its tension.
Body tension is every musician’s enemy and holding one’s breath when nervous or concentrating is equal to holding onto body tension. Learning to keep the breathing loose and free keeps one’s body mindful and stable.
Our guitar lessons incorporate practical technics of how to release one’s habits of muscle tension.
Our ukulele lessons help students develop an awareness of their physical selves. How one’s hands should move to tackle the ukulele strings or how the ukulele is held or even the creation of sound vibration, develops students into a more heightened connection to their own personhood much like any physical therapy might.
An awareness of good body posture is required when playing ukulele. Our ukulele lessons foster self-awareness of how one currently carries their body versus the training of how one should carry the body. The practice of posture is a life skill that will carry over into a student’s everyday life.
Our ukulele lessons assist in developing the awareness of how one’s body reacts when under social anxiety or stress. We help identify where one’s mental and emotional stress comes from. We coach on how to practically navigate through these feelings and how to self-analyze one’s emotions in order to acquire a more balanced and peaceful self.
Our lessons are a safe space where students can self-analyze and express their feelings and thoughts through their music. We tell students, “Every feeling is a note, every note is beautiful, and every note counts.”
Our ukulele lessons develop students beyond the stress of social and performance anxiety. Our desire is to help our students move on to being self-expressers who are more comfortable and confident of their own personhood.
That’s why we say, it’s more than just music here. It’s a commitment to “self”.
