Authentic Emotional Expression Using Stanislavsky's Acting Methods
Presenter: Eli Epstein

How to develop the freedom to express our feelings, our stories and ourselves with our audience.

The focus of horn study around the world has centered to some degree on technique and accuracy. Yet, playing the right notes is only part of what it take to be a musician and artist. Stanislavski’s widely used “System” activates an actor’s creativity and imagination. Generations of actors have been inspired by these ideas. Stanislavski’s concepts such as “emotional memory” and the "Magic If” are equally powerful means for musicians to consciously tap into the unconscious and create spontaneous, authentic and moving performances.
