WHAT IS THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE?
The Alexander Technique is a gentle technique that reduces unwanted physical and mental tension. It helps musicians develop the skills of good coordination and poise that contribute to a healthy instrumental or vocal technique.
The positive effects of the Alexander Technique are thoroughly acknowledged in the field of Performing Arts Education, such that it forms part of the curriculum at many music colleges, dance and theatre schools in the UK and around the world.
By complementing musical study with lessons in the Alexander Technique, musicians empower themselves with the ability to change, experiencing more flexible, creative and connected performance.
For those teaching or learning to teach, the Alexander Technique can equip them with the tools to observe their students’ habits more clearly, enabling them to provide better support in the learning process.
