What is Sound Touch?
Sound Touch is the teaching method through which everyone - musicians and non-musicians alike - can learn to use a unique system of
sound therapy developed by Arden
Wilken. It is based on the combination of 50 musical motifs and 5 different touches.
Arden has woven these two elements together to create INNER SOUND, a series of self-help tapes and CDs, as well as her hugely successful Personal Music compositions, commissioned by over 10,000 individuals.
Sound Touch presents a teaching method to introduce a system of sound therapy to your life.
Sound Touch comprises 50 motifs and a series of different 'touches' that have been developed by Sound Therapist, Arden
A motif is a short musical phrase made up of several notes that create a distinctive rhythmic pattern. Since 1978, through her investigative work with sound and music, Arden has identified over 50 motifs that have their own distinct healing influences.
The five touches can be expressed as standard dynamic markings in music and can be learned through the use of specific exercises without any prior musical training required. They can be played with any instrument, including the voice.
Learning to play the motifs with these touches provides you with a method to connect more directly with your emotional self, which in turn allows you to feel more deeply whatever music you may play or enjoy.

SOUND TOUCH Master
Classes- Arden Wilken works on an individual basis with musicians using the
INNER SOUND motifs and 5 touches to help them achieve their desired goal in
relationship to their music. Some examples of desired goals are as follows: to
gain greater satisfaction and pleasure while playing, to learn to improvise, or
to attain greater mastery over a chosen instrument. The sessions are normally 1½
hours. There is no minimum number of
works with all levels and instruments
regardless of the kind of music normally played.
"I was practicing for my next level exam in piano and I had to play a
Beethoven Sonata. I had never liked
Beethoven and was having enormous difficulty sitting down to practice.
I had a session with
and she showed me how to refocus my
playing using 5 different touches and several of her motifs.
I was so amazed at how differently I felt in just a short period of time.
I could sit for hours practicing Beethoven and I loved it! I passed with
no problems. I now teach my piano
students about the motifs and touches."
"I'm from the
and play the steel drum. I took 4
and she showed me that I was playing with
a lot of tension in my body, particularly in my thumbs where I was holding the
mallets. I practiced the 5 touches a lot just by themselves and as well about 10
of the INNER SOUND motifs. I noticed
that I felt really good when I played my concerts and that more people were
coming up afterwards and saying, 'Hey man, that was great!' One of the guys I
play with told me that he couldn't say exactly what was different but that the
tone of the drum was 'sweeter' sounding." HB,
