Offering a wide range of seminars, courses and counseling, the Hochschule für Musik does not only emphasize general health promotion but also aims at a musical education based on physiological principles and at stimulating the students` individual strengths.
Our goals are effective measures of prevention as well as supporting an improvement of performance.
In our courses and seminars students can train coordination, body awareness and endurance as well as coping with stress, psychological strain and musical performance anxiety.
The program is based on scientific standards established in musicians` medicine, sports medicine, and physiotherapy, and it is well adjusted to the particular concerns of instrumentalists and singers. Yet holistic oriented body techniques or movement methods as well as approved relaxation techniques and improvement of stage presence are included as well.
For students of the Detmold Centre for highly talented young musicians (DHZ) we offer a separate curriculum comprising workshops and seminars appropriate for these young musicians.
The Musician`s Health program is free of charge for the students of the Hochschule für Musik Detmold.
(Except for a low fee for individual lessons in Alexander-technique)
