Mental training for musicians is back on the curriculummain
Four months ago, the Royal Academy of Music in London scrapped a valuable course in mental training by Professor Inger Murray. The Latvian accordionist Ksenija Sidorova led the outcry and Slipped Disc took up the cause.
Today, Ksenija tells us:
I am very happy to report that Inger will continue her Mental Training for Musicians workshops at the RAM. And it has been upgraded to be more part of the main stream Academy work.
A secretary will arrange the workshops and liaise with Dept. Heads and Professors. I am very happy. The concept Inger has developed is brilliant and will continue to help musicians to be able to realize their full potential on the concert platform. Her book has received wonderful reviews in Denmark and is widely used. The English language version is being translated now and should be available in approximately three months’ time.
