Students and Teachers
In order to give the opportunity to all students who wish to offer the result of their work, we organize concerts in various venues, at the meeting venue and other points of the city. Students and teachers enrich the cultural life of Cieza during these days.

Alexander Technique workshop
The Alexander Technique allows a deep awarness of the use of ourselves in the daily life, and while playing an instrument or singing. What's happening in my thoughts and in my body when I'm organising myself to play/sing? It is about learning to stop in order to allow new habit to happen (habit of reacting to a situation, habit of technical gesture, ...)
With an emphasis on the support that the earth offer to us, and on the delicate balance between the head, the neck and the torso, the Alexander Technique allows a better knowledge of ourselves, a bigger quality of presence and more confidence, more freedom in movements and in artistic technique.
Géraldine Naus, the Singing teacher of our 'Encuentro', wants to share with all of us her training and expertise in the work of the Alexander Technique, which she integrates into her musical experience.
Cecilia Peñalver Marín
Yoga is proven to strength and improve the physical and mental wellbeing, it is giving us the possibility to experience the consciousness and it is connecting us with the full potential of our creative energy.
During musical activity, technical skills and accuracy, reasoning, creativity, intuition and emotional expression come into play. The musician is not a separate entity from her/his instrument, she/he “is” the instrument. Then, all that happens in her/his body, mind and spirit is translated in the music she/he is playing.
The professional musician is experiencing a demanding daily training which requires a lot of work and effort, and he has to deal with moments of stress and high demand during stage practice.
Taking this into account, to get the best out of it, it is very important for the musician to keep a healthy, strong and flexible body; a focused, balanced and lucid mind and a connected and free spirit.
The practice of meditation exercises and/or breathing techniques before a concert helps reduce anxiety and improve the performance.
