Body Mapping: Breathing and Balance
with Kelly Mollnow Wilson
Kelly Mollnow Wilson is fresh off a successful stint at the NFA Convention as clinician for an enlightening body mapping presentation. No worries if you missed it -- you can catch Kelly on Saturday, October 1st at 1:00 at Martha Somach’s house. Set your GPS for 21049 Colby Rd in Shaker Heights and get ready to learn some exciting new skills on how to improve your body mechanics in relation to playing the flute. Martha is planning to ask Kelly to clarify some weird stuff she heard at the convention regarding anatomy and flute playing. Bring your questions, too, as well as your flute!
Participation is limited to the first 20 respondents.
** OPEN EVENT -- GCFS membership is not required to attend **
This fantastic outreach program takes our flute music into senior living facilities and nursing homes every 6 to 8 weeks.

This is a wonderful opportunity for us to use music to brighten the day for those who can't get "out and about"
like we can. Please join us if you can!
We are slowly starting to resume this outreach program. If you are interested in participating, please contact us.
