Playing an instrument or singing is a complex process involving not just hands, embouchure, or voice, but your whole self.

Habits of tension and misuse can and frequently do hinder free musical expression.

The Alexander Technique is a powerful tool for preventing injuries, improving overall coordination, and increasing poise in performance.

This method is taught at performing arts institutions worldwide and can be applied to any activity.

In this introductory workshop, you’ll learn how to sit, stand, move, and make music with more awareness and ease.

Musicians of all levels, from beginners to professionals, are welcome.
