Alexander Technique Overview: Foundational Principles, Current Research, and Significance in Voice Training

Wednesday 16th October 2024, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM (London Time)

£30 - UK £30 - International

The Alexander Technique is a re-educative process embracing the connection between mind and body. For over a hundred years, the principles advocated by F.M. Alexander have been taught to alter injurious habits, reduce chronic tension, identify more efficient movement patterns, improve vocal timbre, and minimize performance anxiety. This introductory course will identify and discuss core principles of the Alexander Technique, its potential benefits to voice users, as well as practical applications beyond better posture.

There is evidence in voice pedagogy literature to suggest that many singing and acting teachers believe that lessons in the Alexander Technique benefit the voice. Postural improvement is the most commonly cited reason for studying the Technique, however, many Alexander teachers contend that this view represents a limited understanding of the Technique.

This overview will be presented in lecture format, with interspersed workshop elements, to encourage exploration of the how over the what. At the conclusion of the course, participants will have a preliminary understanding of the Technique’s precepts, and how the Technique may benefit those who wish to improve their singing or speaking. Existing Alexander Technique/voice research will also be discussed.
