UNCSA Karen Tuttle Viola Workshop


his is an intensive three-day workshop taught by several generations of former Tuttle students; Professors Sheila Browne, Dr. Susan Dubois, Michelle LaCourse, Karen Ritscher, and Stephen Wyrczynski. It is for intermediate to advanced high school and college students, professionals, and teachers interested in learning more about Karen Tuttle's Coordination system. This healthy approach to playing includes balancing the instrument, stance, and body awareness, leading to ease and comfort, resulting in a beautiful, resonant sound, more facile technique, expressive playing, and reduced stage fright. Left and right hand technique, phrasing, pacing, character and musical expression, among other things, are also addressed in Coordination.

Enrollment is limited to the first 45 people who apply, and no audition material is required. Auditors are also welcome. Each person will play for several teachers during the classes.
In addition to classes on Coordination, we are privileged to have Professor Karen Ritscher teach a 5Rhythms® Movement Class.
