Nick Reynolds Coordinator / Head of Jazz at University of Chichester Conservatoire has organised and brought everyone together to make this event happen.
We share a conviction that musical practice and the every day teaching and learning of music can be enhanced by direct integration with practices from “inner work”, the disciplines of yoga, meditation, psychotherapy, music therapy and it is about integration – from the outside in, and the inside out.
This event is FREE. For more info & booking contact Nick Reynolds: firstname.lastname@example.org
