Body mapping will help you to
• Reduce tension in your playing.
• Prevent injury.
• Extend your career
• Improve your posture
• Free your self-expression.
Although Diane mainly works with string players, the Body Mapping course is for all musicians who seek joyful music-making without any limitations.
Diane is a celebrated performer and educator. She has performed internationally as a soloist, chamber musician, and in orchestras. She is also a noted educator and has recently taken on the role of Head of Strings at the Royal Irish Academy of Music.
Body Mapping enables musicians to move according to the bodies’ true anatomical design, enhancing performance by increasing freedom and facility. It helps to unleash artistic expression and to prevent performance-related injuries. Having trained in Body Mapping for a number of years, Diane is a licensed member of the Association of Body Mapping Education, having become the first qualified European string player in 2021.
