Franklin Method® and Music

Improving your body awareness and anatomical knowledge leads to improved posture, movement, stage presence and ability of handling your instrument / voice:

Workshops / Courses with Sophia Mae Tabassi

In my workshops and courses I impart anatomical knowledge, the perception of it and its application when working with your instrument/voice. The objective is to improve your performance, musical expression and the skill using your instrument.
As a graduated jazz singer, I musically mainly focus on popular music, despite having received classical training on the flute on the one hand, and on the other hand the physiology of the body remains completely independent of any genre.
