Musicians Many musicians utilize the Alexander Technique to improve their ability to create music effectively. A course of lessons helps them change their approach to music, helping them play more naturally, holistically, and with greater presence.
AT in Music Education Musicians benefit greatly from the Alexander Technique, and there are many famous institutions like the Juilliard School and The Royal Academy of Music which integrate it with their curriculum so that their students have a competitive advantage in the performance world while maintaining health and coordination.
Benefits Musicians benefit from the increased somatic awareness and improved coordination earned from AT lessons. The skills musicians acquire from AT allows them to both prevent and manage chronic pain while maximizing their instrumental potential. Studies show that AT also reduces performance anxiety, a common complaint of performance artists, giving them an increased sense of purpose and control in moments of high stakes.
