The “Nutmeg Studio NYC Performance Masterclass” on how to listen in the moment.
Hsing-ay Hsu has been concerned about a significant missing piece of the puzzle – the art of listening, which in both music and life promotes the values of collaboration and communication. For inquisitive learners, this pianist-turned-educator turns music appreciation upside down. While most methods approach classical music languages through information and knowledge, relegating the sensory experience as secondary, Hsu’s Conscious Listening process leads with the act of listening, being curious, without bias or assumptions or expectations, for sensory pleasure, and for gaining awareness. When ears are in tune, they open up the world.
Her concept to “lead with listening” applies to verbal and performance communication, and finds meaning within chaos and complexity. Scientific evidence shows that musical engagement brings lifelong cognitive benefits, builds resilience, and fosters social collaboration. Hsu’s Conscious Listening™ programs unlock these life advantages.
