Mindfulness Practice for Collegiate Music Students and Faculty

Presenter: Dr. Vanessa Cornett (University of St. Thomas)

Contemplative pedagogy is a powerful multidisciplinary movement in higher education teaching, research, service, and administration. This largely holistic philosophy of education incorporates mindful awareness to encourage deep reflection, creative inquiry, and imaginative problem solving. When students learn to integrate techniques of contemplation in the practice room and on stage, they are better equipped to become healthy, artistic, independent musicians. Similarly, studio and ensemble instructors can improve their own self-awareness when listening, offering feedback, and handling interpersonal conflicts. This webinar explores the current research on mindfulness practice and offers practical techniques for incorporating mindfulness into teaching and music making, with an emphasis on injury prevention and stress and anxiety management.
