The students and faculty of IMIF 2014 have kicked off an exciting 10 days today! There have already been so many great experiences, and we are just getting started. Here is a look at some of the fun activities from today!
We started off the day with some great speeches from the IMIF faculty -
Then, we got moving with a fun and engaging theatre workshop by Mark Krawczyk!
Mark used theatre exercises to elaborate on the many ways a musician can implement different tools and techniques in their practice and performance. Mainly, BREATHING!
It was an amazing way to loosen up, get friendly with other students, and have a blast.
There was still time for some games and fun before evening reflection:
The participants were definitely tired! We can't wait to see what the week has in store. Stay tuned for more daily updates!
"IIMIF is an amazing place where you learn to master what you love with some of the greatest teachers in the world."
"I loved that IIMIF focuses on the emotional and spiritual side of the musician just as much as the technical side. I've been to several summer programs, and this sets your program apart."
"The focus on a holistic approach and comprehensive musicianship made for an incredible experience. There are not enough words to capture how grateful I am for what I learned."
"I especially loved that this festival is so intimate. Great things come in small packages!"
