New York Dalcroze Workshops: 2017-2018

Ursula Stuber : Eutony

  • Thursday, October 12, 2017
  • 6:00pm - 9:00pm
  • Diller-Quaille School of Music (map)

Ursula Stuber holds the Diplôme Jaques-Dalcroze (Geneva) and the Diplôme Eutony Gerda Alexander (Geneva). She is retired professor of Université Laval, Faculty of Music, where she developed over 40 years the principles of Eutony and created a dynamic and efficient approach of body awareness for musicians. Her research activities and publications focus on somatic education and prevention of muscular-skeletal dysfunctions. She gives art seminars and workshops in Europe and North America. Her specialized area of teaching covers the musician’s sensory-motor control, posture and gesture. In 1995, she co-authored the audio-visual document "Tuning The Body To The Music" and a few years later she created an ergonomic chair for musicians. She also was head of the Eutony-training school in Québec City and is the main teacher of the Master’s Eutony program at Université Laval.

The workshop will give participants the opportunity to experience the main principles of Eutony:


Weight distribution within the conscious interplay of antigravity forces through bones and joints. Exploration of stretch reflexes in skeletal muscles and their relationship with gesture and posture.


Awareness of the skin and dynamic touching, including the Drawing-technique.


Contact-technique on the instrument; its implication for muscle tone, ergonomics, and the quality of sound and movement.

Private lessons will be available on October 13 for the application of those principles to musical performance.
