The Alexander Technique Consultancy

Violinists /String players / Musicians #01

New Course, please follow this link: www.alexandertechniqueforviolinists.com

Alexander Technique lessons can help you transform the quality of ‘action’ in string playing, gain more control of breathing in singing and help enhance freedom and stage presence in performances. I am also a very experienced professional violinist and give violin lessons in Windsor and London Please see the Alexander Technique for violinists website for details of courses

Alexander lessons can make you more effective and knowledgeable in the following ways:

  • Encourage efficient and healthy practice.

  • Gain more confidence and reliability of technique in performance.

  • Enhance good instrumental and vocal teaching with awareness of unconscious habits that interfere with good co-ordination.

  • Prevent misuse that can lead to joint and limb problems such as stiffness, pain and RSI

  • Learn to understand that habitual patterns of thinking limit movement, breathing and co-ordination that in turn limit musicality.

    It is important to recognise that exercise and ‘therapies’ that are designed to help do not address the critical problem of habit on a moment to moment basis. This is the crux on which true learning and development of skill depends. This is exactly where the Alexander Technique comes into its own.

    As a successful professional performer (violinist) Alun has a clear understanding of the pressures involved in studying and performing at a high level. He is an experienced recitalist, having given performances for Radio Three and at festivals and music clubs in addition to his work with many of the major orchestras in the UK.

    His work with the Alexander Technique and music making, especially string playing, dates back over twenty years. He currently teaches at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance where he is the Alexander Technique Coordinator. He has also taught at the Guildhall School of Music in London. He gives regular workshops to musicians of all abilities and ages including both Alexander lessons and violin lessons at his home in Windsor and also at the Bloomsbury Alexander Centre in central London.

    If you would like violin lessons please get in touch. Lessons are usually 1 hour in length. Some people like to take Alexander lessons and violin lessons concurrently.
