This course is run to assist musicians struggling with injury or pain when practicing or performing. Also for those who wish to cultivate positive practices for injury prevention and comfort in playing.

It is open to musicians of any instrument, age, background or level of experience.

The content will mostly be drawn from principles of Alexander Technique and look at how they are relevant to a musician’s practice.

Throughout the course, musicians will:

  • Deepen understanding of how to meet the demands of performance

  • Improve on body mapping

  • Learn to modify patterns of posture and movement which may be non-productive

  • Apply a practical framework for promoting healthy coordination

  • Develop skills to independently apply what they have learnt in the sessions

The course will be customised to suit the needs of the individuals who attend.

There is a piano in the studio, other instrumentalists are asked to bring their instruments.
