WHAT IS TAKETINA ?
"TAKETINA BRIDGES THE GAP BETWEEN MUSIC AND MEDICINE. FLATISCHLER’S WORKSHOPS AND LECTURES HAVE PROVED THIS MANY TIMES AT VARIOUS SYMPOSIA ORGANIZED BY THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR MUSIC IN MEDICINE."
PROF. DR. RALPH SPINTGE, CHAIRMAN OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR MUSIC IN MEDICINE
Ta Ke Ti Na is a holistic group learning process and a profoundly new way of experiencing and understanding rhythm.
In Ta Ke Ti Na music, movement, communication,
neurological research and chaos theory are integrated to create a new process for learning and transformation.
Learning with the Ta Ke Ti Na process develops inner presence, creativity, musicality and opens an awareness of our individual patterns, which inhibit our lives and relationships.
Ta Ke Ti Na leads participants to their innate rhythmic knowledge and connects us to the forgotten power of rhythm in nature and within us.
As a deeply relaxing and meditative process, TaKeTiNa requires no musical experience and invites participants to go at their own pace.
Body as Instrument
Learning through the body is direct and requires no
technical skills. Rhythms are layered into the body through stepping, clapping and the voice.
Rhythm becomes a mirror for our personal process and teaching us how to enter our true authentic nature.
Where is Ta Ke Ti Na being used?
Established for more than 40 years, Ta Ke Ti Na is officially part of the curriculum at music conservatoriums located in Hamburg, Zurich and most recently at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna. It is utilised in pain management and various therapy settings including prisons, drug rehabilitation programs, theatre, dance companies and corporate training programs.
'TaKeTiNa is a process, capable of activating the human and musical potential through rhythm. Learning rhythm and music with the TaKeTiNa process always means learning for life, too'.
— Reinhard Flatischler - composer, founder of TaKeTiNa
"The Ta Ke Ti Na rhythm process constitutes a great contribution to the evolution of music pedagogy. Ta Ke Ti Na seminars are always welcomed with great enthusiasm by our students.”
— Professor Werner Hasitschka, President, University of Music, Vienna.
"TaKeTiNa is a valuable contribution to our curriculum. It is always met with enthusiasm by our students and professors."
— Prof. W. Hasitschka, Rector of the Music University in Vienna.
