Visiting Professorship for Garet Newell
Recently The London College of Music at The University of West London has appointed Garet Newell as a visiting Professor. This is an honorary position proposed by both Robert Sholl and Marcia Carr, who both teach the Feldenkrais Method in their departments.
Robert Sholl holds a chair in music since many years and has embedded the Method in Postgraduate Performance teaching. As the students have responded in such a positive manner more time has been given to teaching the Feldenkrais Method.
Marcia Carr is a Senior Lecturer in Musical Theatre, and has been offering the Feldenkrais Method to students within London College of Music (across Classical Music and all Performing Arts) and the wider university community.
Garet will be involved in workshops with students and staff, as well as to develop research and to develop the new MA in Movement and Somatic Practice, which the University hopes to have up and running by September 2018.
Robert Sholl writes: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Garet to this post and we look forward to her expert teaching and developing this role”.
