Please, join Dr. Jackie McIlwain, Associate Professor of Clarinet at the University of Southern Mississippi for a virtual event on April 22, 2021 at 7:00 PM Eastern: An Introduction to 'Body Mapping' and 'The Alexander Technique'. During this exploratory presentation, Dr. McIlwain will provide brief descriptions of Body Mapping and the Alexander Technique and how they can help you, simple movement explorations to aid your music making, and uncover myths about breathing.

In 2017 Dr. McIlwain became a licensed Andover Educator, which allows her to teach Body Mapping.  This body awareness technique teaches anatomy and physiology of the body and how this knowledge can help us release tension and move more efficiently.  Body Mapping was created specifically to help musicians perform with more freedom and ease as well as to aid in injury prevention and recovery.  Dr. McIlwain has traveled throughout the country to different universities and presented at several different conferences as well.  These schools and conferences include the University of Alabama - Birmingham, Northwestern State University, University of Arizona, Pensacola Christian College, Middle Tennessee State University, Indiana University at Pennsylvania, Mississippi Music Teachers Association Conference, USM Viola Festival, Florida Music Educators Association Conference.
