The Alexander Technique is a method of neuromuscular reeducation, through which people can learn how to consciously create more ease in their body in any activity or situation. FM Alexander, an actor from Australia, discovered more than a hundred years ago that the way we coordinate our heads, necks, and backs can create either ease or malfunction in the whole body. The method he developed to help himself and others improve their functioning engages not only the body but equally the mind.

Musicians study the Technique for many reasons: to prevent and recover from injury, to alleviate the effects of nervousness in performance, to increase breath capacity, to prevent the debilitating tension that can be accumulated during long hours of practice, to improve their technique and ease in playing, or to create a bigger, richer sound.
