Bravo! This workshop is really fantastic. I learned a lot and found it very helpful the way you tie in the muscle information with the stretches.

All musicians need this workshop! I've been looking for a workshop like this for my students...it's so important for all musicians.
Heidi Lehwalder, Concert Harpist
I just wanted to tell you that the breathing exercises we went through seem to be very effective! I felt very comfortable at the concert last night and tonight. Will keep at it, but I think I've made huge progress. Thank you!
Jason Yu, New York Philharmonic
I have ALWAYS wanted to find a way to get my students stretching and learning how to take care of their bodies and prevent injuries. Hal Grossman's class was a revelation - he has organized it all for us - lots of useful information and it is really easy and accessible for the students as well. I am very excited because this is exactly what I have dreamed of for years - it fills a huge need in the string teaching community. I want to get all my colleagues and students involved.
Dr. Sarah Plum, Professor of Violin, Drake University
Your workshop was fantastic! In my coaching today I mentioned some of the stretching and breathing tips to my students and it was immediately effective!
Dr. Laura Thielke, Director of Chamber Music, Walnut Hill School for the Arts
Thank you Hal for your dynamic presentation. The workshop was fun and very informative and I hope you will come back soon.
Professor Andrew Mark, String Department Chair, Boston Conservatory
I just had to write to tell you how useful your seminar has been for me. I have been using some of the techniques you showed us to help understand better posture and alignment when standing or sitting as well as breathing while playing the violin. Thanks again for everything.
