The Alexander Technique is a non-intrusive, active technique that allows both body and mind to restore some of the natural energy and balance of which they are capable. Alexander Technique will provide an invaluable tool to release the unnecessary muscular tension accumulated because of bad habits and emotional stress, to increase breathing and a sensation of growth in the spine and body. The Technique can be especially beneficial for musicians dealing with excessive stress, injury, or pain and for musicians wanting to enhance performance skills. The Alexander Technique is included in the curriculum of a number of conservatories and university music departments worldwide.
