Rooted in jazz and classical traditions, saxophonist Steve Duke has established himself as a leading artist in contemporary music and improvisation. His work in computer music has earned him international acclaim.

 

Duke’s album recordings include Monk By 2 with Joe Pinzaronne (Sony/Columbia), Saint Ambrose with Rodney Waschka II (Capstone).  He recently recorded a piano and sax duo album, Passing Through, with pianist/composer Kurt Stallmann (available on Amazon). 

 

Duke innovated multi-genre pedagogy on the saxophone, and in 1989 he developed the first music curriculum in the United States that applied the Feldenkrais® Method to reduce performance stress and heighten performing awareness.

     As performers, our bodies are an integral part of our creative work.

     This workshop includes simple movement lessons designed to increase mobility, reduce tension, and improve singing. 

 

     You will have the opportunity to hear how the lessons affect the voice. 

 

     There will be time for discussion, and resources will be available to facilitate further study.

 

     Everyone is encouraged to wear comfortable clothing that allows for free movement and to bring a floor mat.
