Alexander Technique for Musicians

The Alexander Technique is a ‘self-help’ technique that can help musicians reduce unnecessary tension, improve posture and playing technique, and alleviate pain.

Jane Gregory brought our attention to the expanded section for musicians on her website. Jane teaches Alexander Technique to students and staff at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. You’ll find two fascinating and useful articles (aimed at bass guitarists and drummers but applicable to all musicians), presenting easy, practical advice based on the Alexander Technique.

BAPAM’s Directory of Practitioners can help you find an Alexander Technique teacher in your area. Performing artists registered with BAPAM are eligible for reduced price sessions with many practitioners, including Jane Gregory.
