Miscellaneous exercises3) Playing in the Key of Chi: Qigong for Musicians
Focus: Using qigong to cope with the daily stress of a music student’s life
I have also become more aware of my chi … as a physical matter rather than an abstract notion or feeling. This will greatly improve my performances in my music.
It has helped me get through many (playing) sessions this semester and has helped me balance this hectic schedule of musicianship.
I’ve also started doing some qigong with my guitar on me and it already is starting to help me with some blocks.
It is very calming. It helps my outlook on life. I think in a sense, it is helping me accept myself more.What Do Students Think?
