I became interested in the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais after many
years studying movement, particularly Tai Chi, and Martha Graham-based
dance. I graduated from the first British Feldenkrais Professional
Training Programme in 1990, and am still involved in the U.K. training
programmes as both an administrator, and an experienced practitioner,
giving individual lessons to trainee practitioners up to the present
day. I have many years experience teaching Feldenkrais, and Feldenkrais-based
voicework, both privately, and in Colleges, Universites and Adult
Education Centres in the U.K. and abroad.
I have been singing professionally in the popular music field since
1983, and teaching voice and singing to a wide variety of students,
including professional and trainee actors, since 1988. I enjoy most
kinds of singing but I get the greatest pleasure from Jazz and improvisation.
Since qualifying as a Feldenkrais teacher, my ongoing project has
been to develop a comprehensive awareness-based voice and singing
teaching system, using the Feldenkrais approach. To this end I have
explored many modern voice teaching methods, focusing particularly
on the work of Jo Estill, a highly-respected pioneer in the field
of voice training, and Alison Bagnall, an Australian Feldenkrais
practitioner, speech therapist, and early collaborator of Estill’s.
The VocalDynamix Workshop series is the culmination of my years
of study, and my personal vocal exploration and development.
"Where else can you find help with organising your body
that is both intuitive and deeply intelligent? As a connoisseur
of the Feldenkrais Method® I have identified Maggy Burrowes
as one of the foremost U.K. practitioners."
