Alexander Technique for Musicians

The Alexander Technique helps musicians improve the quality and ease of their movements, and in so doing, helps improve the quality of the music itself. At this workshop we will explore how both our learned habits and the words we use in regards to playing our instruments affect the quality of our experience. Through a combination of partner and group activities, learn to develop awareness of undue tension which can be applied to both practice and performance. 

Bring a yoga mat or towel and 2 hard cover books as props.
