Yoga para Músicos


On May 23th and 24th 2019, the Portugal Accordion Association will carry out 4 Masterclasses, inviting 3 recognized professors - Franck Angelis, Christine Rossi and Renzo Ruggieri - and for the third time in the International Week of the Accordion, we will have two sessions of Yoga for Musicians, directed by Diana Freire.

Technical correction, interpretation and mastery of the program (s) enunciated by themes, objectives and objectives by concepts with invited teachers, and the Yoga for Musicians session is one of the best ways to be able to transmit and practice breathing and mental control techniques so each participant can improve concentration and memory, develop muscular strength and agility to better musical technique, resistance against possible injuries and also be able to manage anxiety before a concert or audition.

These Masterclasses are integrated in the 23rd INTERNATIONAL WEEK of the ACCORDION "Alcobaça 2019" (May 18th to 26th), complementing a series of activities of which we highlight the concerts (18th, 19th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th May) and the 24th National Trophy / 5th International Accordion Competition (25th and 26th May).
