F M Alexander

The Alexander Technique was developed by Frederick Matthias Alexander (1869-1955), an Australian actor and reciter who started to experience periods of hoarseness during his performances.

He realised that his problems were caused by the way he was interfering with his natural coordination and functions and that he had to find a way to learn how to prevent this.

After many years of patient observation, Alexander developed a new approach to co-ordination and movement. He did not only clear his vocal problems, but he also improved his general health.

Alexander moved to London in 1904 He developed and taught his technique in England and America until his death in 1955. There are now more than a thousand teachers teaching worldwide and many doctors and specialists refer patients for lessons. Research in England, America and Europe has demonstrated the effectiveness of the work.

The outstanding value of the technique in freeing and enhancing the performance has been recognised in the theater world since the beginning of the 20 century. Most of the major music and drama colleges have Alexander teachers on their staff.

The Alexander Technique is taught at the Royal College of Music and Dramatic Art in London, The Stratford Shakespearean Festival, Boston,The Julliard School of Performance Arts, New York, Conservatory- Sweelinck, Amsterdam,Conservatory-Den Hague, Utrecht, and many more.

Numerous musicians, actors, athletes, swimmers and many others, have benefited from the technique.
