Let’s Talk About Nothing!

If we are trying to ‘do' something we can only repeat what is familiar and well practiced. But, if we wish to lessen the force of habit and discover something different, we face the challenge of not making any effort and thus feeling powerless. How can we invite a state of receptivity that opens us to an experience that is as yet unknown? The absence of effort may just feel like ’nothing.’

This Sunday afternoon workshop will run in Harley Street from 1:30pm UK time to 4:30pm with Alex Farkas and your hosts, the directors from Hite. Alex will be sharing his 22 years of international teaching experience.

About Alex Farkas

Music, for Alex, has always been a driving passion. Childhood was spent dancing and playing the piano. At the Manhattan School of Music he was awarded a degree in piano studies.

In his late 20’s he took ballet classes with Alfredo Corvino who taught ease, line and fluidity - and always to listen to the music. He discovered Kodály music education, went on to study in Hungary and armed with this new knowledge he was offered a position at the Hartt School of Music in Hartford, Connecticut where he taught solfege and ear-training for 27 years.

A gift of an Alexander lesson with Judith Stransky changed the course of his life. Soon afterward Patrick Macdonald visited New York where Alex was a stand-in ‘body’ for a teacher having a lesson with Macdonald.

‘After I was taken to the chair with Macdonald looking on and saying, "I didn’t much care for that'’, he put the teacher’s hands back on me and then placed his hands over hers and I felt myself inexplicably lifted from the chair. My immediate thought was: This is what I’ve been looking for only I didn’t know I was looking for it.’

Teacher training began in 1991 with Shoshana Kaminitz and family circumstances stretched his training until 1998. Further lessons followed with Margaret Goldie, Marjorie Barlow and Elisabeth Walker.

Since then Alex has taught both music and the Alexander Technique throughout Europe and in the north eastern United States.

All participants will receive a record of attendance after the event.
