ONLINE via Zoom
Instructor: Tina Bergmann
For All Levels/Instruments
Are you sore or tight after playing your instrument? Does your practice or playing time get cut short because you’re physically fatigued or hurting? This workshop will create awareness around how you’re using your body, and help to alleviate discomfort during and after playing. We’ll discuss and practice safe and gentle movements, many done seated, to reset the body and create healthier and more relaxed posture overall, both in the practice room and out!
Hailed by Pete Seeger as “the best hammered dulcimer player I’ve heard in my life,” Tina Bergmann has been performing concerts, and teaching workshops and private lessons from an early age. A fourth-generation musician, Bergmann began playing music at age eight, learning the mountain dulcimer from her mother in the aural tradition and learning the hammered dulcimer at the knee of West Virginia-native builder and performer Loy Swiger. Demonstrating gifts for both performance and teaching, she has been a featured performer across the United States, performing solo; as a duo with her husband, bassist Bryan Thomas; with her stringband Hu$hmoney; and both nationally and internationally as a member of Apollo’s Fire, Cleveland’s world renowned Baroque Orchestra.
