The Whole Self in Music
We are all sensitive musicians at heart: we all know the power of music to move and transform us.
My aim is to show people how to connect with that power in all forms of music making, how we can work with the whole body and mind to greatly enhance our musical ability, overcome creative blocks and anxiety, gain insight, and find freedom through music.

About Robert Szymanek
I have been working as a musician and music tutor for over 15 years. My training includes piano, vocal and gamelan performance, ethnomusicology and composition at the Royal Academy of Music, London.
I have been fortunate to perform with and compose for incredible musicians around the world. I am now dedicated to helping people cultivate their own musicality, whether they be professional, keen amateur, advanced student or beginner.
The Sensitive Musician Toolkit
Through my teaching, I share a range of techniques and exercises that awaken and engage our natural capacity to sense and make sense of the world around and inside us.
These techniques draw on both Western and Eastern psychology and contemplative traditions, and I use them in tandem with - and to enliven - conventional methods and knowledge. Together, I call them the Sensitive Musician Toolkit.
