Episode 6 - Music and Health (with Andrew Price)
We are more and more aware of how these two worlds co-exist today. Ideally, they form a symbiotic relationship - if you take care of yourself well, then your music will be better for it and you will be healthier in the long run. Managing our physical, mental and emotional conditions, how we fuel ourselves and recharge our batteries, and even how we go about improving or "practicing" daily - its all inter-connected. More importantly - we tackle what studying music has taught us about personal health, and how studying music can help you in the long run regardless of what you end up doing with your life. Join us as we sit down with our principal bass Andrew Price to tackle the topic.
Our backgrounds? Andrew is a professional musician and educator/teacher, football coach, former personal trainer, and teacher of Alexander Technique. Wojciech is a professional conductor, pianist, and clarinetist, has been playing organized sports as long as he's been playing music, was on the college swim team, has trained with Navy SEALs and still follows their PT & Nutrition guidelines.
Together? We come up with some interesting topics and give you some interesting data that will help you regardless of if you're trying to improve your musicianship, your hobby, your day-to-day life, or whatever else you can fit this podcast into. Its a universal topic with a music twist.
