Alexander Technique has fantastic musical applications as it addresses music’s most important aspect: the musician.
Conventional practice refines our playing skills. But it may also ingrain patterns of movement that impede progress or cause pain.
Alexander Technique gives students an awareness of how these learned patterns affect artistic output and health, and how these patterns may be modified.
An efficiency of movement experienced through Alexander Technique paves the way to greater technical ability, achieves sustained relief from pain and liberates one’s entire performance.
Alexander trained performers also have a powerful tool for handling performance anxiety through increased self-awareness and ability to release undesired tensions.
Their energy is redirected in an efficient way, heightening communication between musician, instrument, and audience. Playing becomes effortless, fun and more inspiring.
