Elizabeth W. Mayo: Summer@Eastman Classes

Focused on increasing her knowledge in the areas of mental and physical health for musicians, Elizabeth chose to attend two of Eastman’s summer courses “Alexander Technique + Mobile Body Alignment for Musicians and Music Educators,” and “Peak Performance Skills.” These classes are oriented around health-related topics that are common to musicians, such as development of physical awareness to improve posture, dealing with performance anxiety, and learning techniques to reduce the possibility of playing injuries. Through this opportunity, Elizabeth has been able to acquire new abilities will benefit her as a future leader in the arts.
