Is your body disconnected from your singing or playing? Do you want fuller, easier breathing? Do you suffer from stage fright? Has poor posture or chronic body tension been getting in the way of your freedom and expression as a vocalist or musician? 

The Alexander Technique has helped people connect to their body and breath, to relieve stress, and to reduce unnecessary tension for over a century. It has been used by vocalists as diverse as Sir Paul McCartney, Julie Andrews, Barbara Bonney, and Joni Mitchell. In this introductory workshop, taught by certified teacher Jeremy Cohn, you will learn simple strategies for becoming aware and letting go of habitual tensions which distort your posture, constrict your breathing, and block your expression. You will also learn restorative exercises to help you develop your poise continually in everyday life. Besides group exploration, this workshop will feature the ‘hands-on’ bodywork which is the hallmark of the Alexander Technique. 

This intimate workshop has limited space available and will focus on the vocal and physical needs and issues of the participants. Instrumentalists who want to learn to play with more ease, fuller breath, and better posture are also encouraged to attend!

Bring your sense of play and curiosity, and don’t miss the opportunity to experience this work usually available only on the conservatory level!
