Music and The Alexander Technique

Unhelpful habits can emerge from long hours of repetition. These can seriously limit technique and inhibit performance.

Intense concentration often brings about a narrowing and restriction of the whole mechanism of the body. Combined with breath holding and tension we can find ourselves struggling in all the places that as musicians we long to be free.

Alexander work can help with:

  • practice tips
  • performance anxiety
  • clarity of intention
  • release of muscular tension
  • stamina
  • authentic communication
  • freedom & spontaneity

With greater awareness it is possible to undo many of these habitual patterns and rediscover the joy of unencumbered musical expression.
