Who was FM Alexander?
F.M. Alexander (1869 – 1955) was an Australian actor who developed unique techniques to overcome a career-threatening voice loss.
The consistent and dramatic improvement in the performance and health of students using his technique earned him international acclaim. Most popular in the UK and USA, his work is taught in over 40 countries and is compulsory in leading performing arts institutions.
Alexander’s four books received praise from leaders in medicine, science, sport and the dramatic arts. His third book, “Use of the Self” outlines the experiments he performed on himself to create the foundations of his technique.
