Drawing one the philosophical and practical premises of the Alexander Technique, students will learn the basic skills that Alexander Technique uses to work on posture, and therefore on voice and movement.

  • Basics of Alignment: 

  • Head Weight and Orientation

  • How we can work with ideas about alignment to effect our posture, movement, breath and voice

Exploring the two most prominent principles of Alexander, Inhibition, and Giving Directions, students will investigate their application to posture, breathe, and voice. Inhibition, or "saying no" to the habitual movement pattern, is the premise for changing posture. 

  • Inhibition

  • Primary Control

  • Kinesthetic Awareness to build balanced presence and innate wakefulness in our inner most body 

  • How does inner alignment bring different practical outcome in respect of voice, singing, and experience?

The foundational understanding reached in this course will allow any artist to set out on the optimal path to proper vocal and singing technique, regardless of their experience or which genre of acting or singing they would like to pursue.
