2018-06-11T05:19:57Z (GMT) by Lin, Chin-Cheng

I am pleased to invite you to review these short educational video-files which are related to my PhD study: Applied Tai-Chi in marimba performance. The artistic part of this research is carried out with the collaboration of the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. The scientific method design and measurement are developed with support of the Multidisciplinary Motor Centre Antwerp (M2OCEAN), the department of Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy (REVAKI) and the Pedagogy department of the University Antwerp. 

The study proves at this moment that the applied Tai Chi movements influence the stability of the trunk and offers students clear guidelines how the body should function behind the marimba. Furthermore, it offers the knowledge of body awareness and artistic inspirations. 

The videos are divided into several categories
1.   Introduction
2.   Breath
3.   Concept of Centre
4.   Upper Trunk
5.   Lower Trunk 
6.   Short summary
Best regards
