Performance & Communication Training Courses
The Heifetz Performance and Communication Training method was developed to guide musicians to discover their full creative potential and express their individuality not only through technically and intellectually robust music making, but also through emotional and even physical engagement with the music they play. It strives to empower young performers to perfect their artistry by developing their physical, mental, and emotional range, and also provides a great opportunity to forge powerful interactions with fellow Heifetz students.
Heifetz Communication Training Coordinator Daniel Pettrow returns to lead this popular segment, where you will discover the “trade secrets” of dramatic communication, and how you can unlock that understanding to bring more dramatic power and meaning to your onstage performances.
Gesture, posture, motion – they all communicate. Harness the power of what meets the eye to enhance what meets the ear. Led by Annabella Lenzu, a dancer, choreographer, and teacher with more than 25 years’ experience working in Argentina, Chile, Italy, and the USA.
