Innate Music March 2010 Newsletter

Dear Friends

Not too long now until the spring bird sings. From mid March this year I will be launching a new website to replace the Resona name. If you would like to continue receiving my quarterly newsletters please email <> putting SUBSCRIBE in the subject header.
In this newsletter you will find info on the Music Another Way series of weekends, the opportunity to hear and play a wonderful collection of antique singing bowls, and details for a concert and workshop of Indian Raga by a master musician from Kolkata.
May you follow your music!

Throughout this year I am running a series of weekends called Music Another Way. They will be held at the beautiful Hawkwood retreat centre in the South Cotswolds and each weekend explores a different, complementary theme.

Living Sound April 9-11, explores the phenomena of sound and how we can use it to support well-being. Finding The Voice June 11-13, will guide you to your natural voice. Rhythms of Life (with Barry Mason, Lina Lotto & Richard Parker) September 10-12, explores a sensitive approach to drumming from basic techniques to improvisation. Intuitive Music (with Erik Huele & Andrew Hodges) October 15- 17, invites you to discover you own music through group sound improvisation.

In addition to offering useful tools, practices and perspectives, the weekends offer a fun and relaxing space for your innate creative potential to unfold and to meet like-minded friends. CPD certificates are available by request. Details are given below for the first weekend this April. For info on the other events visit <>.

April 9 - 11

Sound can have a profound effect on wellbeing. It can refresh a tired body and facilitate deep relaxation. It can influence our mood and affect the atmosphere of a room. It can spark the imagination and provide a wonderful vehicle for creativity.

Living Sound is an exploration of the phenomena of sound and how we can use it to support well-being. It takes us from listening practices that help deepen and refine our perception, to playing and working with instruments known for their rich timbres and deep resonance, such as singing bowls.
The course, led by Stefan Cartwright offers an essential foundation for music making, sound therapy and meditation. It offers practical applications and useful perspectives for trained musicians, artists, health practitioners, group facilitators and anyone interested in human flourishing.

Fees: residential single £248; residential shared £228; non residential £188. This includes superb meals with vegetarian and special diets catered for. £50 discount and priority reservations given for those taking the whole course.

I recently brought back from my travels to Nepal the most wonderful collection of antique singing bowls. If you would like to play and find out about these fine instruments you are welcome to visit my home between 11am and 5pm. Home made light refreshments will be available to enjoy.

The instruments are available for purchase. Please notify me in advance if you intend to come.

June 24 & 26

A date for your diary: Hansa Veena artist Pandit Barun Kumar Pal <> will be giving an evening concert on Thursday 24 June (venue in Stroud TBA) followed by a day workshop on Indian Raga. Contact me for bookings. Barun is a master musician and his last concert here in Stroud was pure magic!
