"We need to develop awareness of how we physically play our instrument otherwise we'll not reach our potential"
In 'Talking Flutes Extra' this week, Jean-Paul speaks with flute player and teacher Niall O'Riordan about his passionate methodology for getting musicians to reach their potential.
Niall is a certified Feldenkrais Method awareness through movement teacher and uses the method to help musicians reach their potentially by learning about their functioning and how to act efficiently. He has taught Feldenkrais classes at the Galway International Flute Festival since 2013.
He is internationally recognised for his completely holistic approach to flute playing and teaching drawing inspiration from yoga, psychology, voice work, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), metaphysics and visualisation.
