To experience more potential and joy in your personal life, your work and your music.

The focus of You and Music seminar unites mind and body for the release of pain, stress and tension in physical and personal performance. This significant relationship of mind and body is the cornerstone of playing beautiful music.

The You and Music seminar also creates a spectrum of blissfulness as you work with professionals, Maria Jeleztcheva in music and Poppie Beveridge for well being. In addition to these creative, energetic instructors, you will receive highlights of Body Mapping technique, relaxation sessions, a chair massage with a trained therapist and introductive sessions with experts in Qi Gong and Yoga.

This six day Musical Adventure and Nurturing Retreat seminar, dedicated to a maximum of 12 attendees, is interwoven with fun and innovative instruction.

You will bask in calming physical activity sessions, relaxatisessions, relaxation and awareness activities, and time for private practice for your individual and/or group presentations. All these activities revolve around the ideas of strengthening your inner self and inner musicianship.

Maria Jeleztcheva, Co-Director of the You and Music seminar, coordinates the activities of the week and supports and works with students for presentations. She is offering coached get-togethers and is organizing a final concert at the end of the seminar.

It is a delight to play music in the historic auditorium because of its intimate space and acoustic quality. Practicing in one of our lovely rooms overlooking the peaceful gardens, brings sighs of “oohs” and “aahs”. The SchoolHouse oozes calm, peace, nature, and nurturing.

Poppie Beveridge opens awareness to "Suppleness in Mind, Strength in Body and Serenity in Spirit" with her work, Posturing for Success. Poppie says,"Posturing" is the interwoven alignments and connections between our body structure, our attitudes of mind that result in our personal emotions and actions. Through this understanding, being aware, and experiencing these alignments and connections, you begin to jump out of the box and discover the real "You" in music.

For attendees wanting to earn Continuing Education Credits, The SchoolHouse Conservatory in The Fine Arts makes it easy and most enjoyable. CEU Credits from Southern Oregon University are being offered to this already incredible You and Music seminar.
