Alexander Technique

Surrey ~ Hampshire ~ Berkshire

The Alexander Technique for Musicians, Actors and Other Performers

Many of the best performers display an economy of movement and seem entirely natural.  Alexander teaches us that this is not just the result of natural talent, but can be learned.   The Alexander Technique helps performers to improve stamina, increase clarity of perception, free up spontaneity and manage stage fright. Improved self-awareness allows them to get rid of poor habits and develop a wider repertoire of skills, to deliver the best performance of which they are capable.


Furthermore, bad habits built up over years of daily misuse can become exaggerated when you have to regularly perform a repetitive, difficult or delicate activity.  Alexander Technique teachers see a lot of actors, musicians, dancers and other performers with pain and discomfort in the back, neck, shoulder and other muscular-skeletal problems, breathlessness and vocal problems, as well as those just seeking to fulfil their creative potential.
