Flutists Lynne Krayer-Luke and Vanessa Mulvey will offer a workshop on Body Mapping—an innovative technique for enhancing musicians’ abilities in practice and helping those suffering from pain or performance-related injuries. This hands-on workshop will provide a range of strategies and exercises for healthy practice and body awareness. All participants are encouraged to bring their instruments. This workshop is co-presented by the Entrepreneurial Musicianship Department and the Health Services Center.

About Lynne Krayer-Luke and Vanessa Mulvey

Newton flutist Lynne Krayer-Luke has lead Body Mapping workshops in the US and UK including National Flute Association Conventions, New York and Long Island Flute Conferences, Royal Northern College of Music (UK), and the Manchester Alexander Technique Training School (UK).  She completed her Master in Music with Distinction at the Royal Northern College of Music where she studied with flutist Peter Lloyd and composed a dissertation titled, “Body Maps, Body Mapping, and Applications for Musicians.”  Ms. Krayer-Luke’s passion for studying the connection between movement and music-making has led her to informally study Alexander Technique, Rolfing, Gyrotonics, Bikram Yoga, and of course the flying trapeze!  Ms. Krayer-Luke is on faculty at MassBay Community College where she teaches music theory.

Flutist Vanessa Breault Mulvey’s passion for music and movement permeates both her playing and teaching.  A faculty member at Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, she also runs a vibrant studio in Reading.  Vanessa is a sought after clinician presenting workshops throughout New England for public schools, colleges and professional conferences, which include Trevor Whye’s Boston Master Class, Boston University, Berklee College of Music, Boston Flute Academy, and National Association for Music Education Eastern Division Conference.  Ms. Mulvey’s writings on fltue playing and pedagogy have been published in Flute Talk magazine, A Young Musician’s Survival Guide    by Amy Nathan, and Flute Focus.
