Singing and the Alexander Technique

Discover Your Free Voice: A 2.5-Hour Workshop on Singing and the Alexander Technique

What stands in the way of you and a free voice? Have you ever felt that your voice is not reaching its full potential? Do you struggle with tension while speaking or singing, or find it hard to maintain vocal consistency? If so, you’re not alone. Many people face these challenges. They often stem from the way we use ourselves, our posture, and our speech habits. By integrating the Alexander Technique with vocal practice, we can interrupt some of our deep-seated habits and hear our true voice free from constraints. Join us for a transformative 2.5-hour workshop where you’ll discover how this powerful technique can enhance your vocal performance and overall well-being.

What is the Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique is a holistic method developed by Frederick Matthias Alexander in the late 19th century. It focuses on improving posture, reducing tension, and promoting efficient movement. By becoming more aware of how we use our bodies, we can make conscious choices that enhance our physical and mental functioning. For anyone looking to improve their vocal abilities, this means discovering a natural, free voice that resonates with ease and clarity.
