Alexander Technique Crouch End based lessons are very popular with musicians. In fact, the Alexander Technique has a long history of helping singers and instrumentalists to perform, enabling them to do so without becoming injured while also reducing the stress they experience. For more information about this, read on.
Musicians do some of the most demanding and complex physical movements demanded of the body. While Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is a term we are becoming more familiar with throughout all walks of life, musicians have always had to deal with the challenge of continually performing the same, complex muscular actions, again and again. Needless to say, this can cause a great amount of strain and stress, which in turn can result in injuries. This is where the Alexander Technique comes in. It improves an individual’s physical movements, ensuring they come to the person easier, which in turn makes them feel more relaxed when singing or playing an instrument; this leads to better music. After all, if a singer is suffering from a tight jaw or neck, their voice will not be as resonant. If a violinist is dealing with stiff arms and shoulders, they won’t be able to produce such a pleasing sound. The Alexander Technique helps to release all undue tension, ensuring the performance is more lively and fluid. There are many musicians over the years that have publicly endorsed this approach, including the conductor Sir Adrian Boult, Irish virtuoso flute player James Galway, and singers Sting and Paul McCartney. Why not give it a go?
