How you practice determines how you play. Your mindset and your physical habits affect how you approach your instrument in daily practice, and when preparing for performances. Make your practice routine both more effective and enjoyable, and learn ways to approach practice that will help you play the way you want to! This approach is very well-suited to anyone who is recovering from and injury or coming back from a break in playing or regular practice.

Some familiarity with the Alexander Technique is helpful but not necessary. I’ll be happy to talk with anyone who would like more information after class.

Please note: The fee for each workshop is $20. Please indicate which date you'd like when checking out. If you'd prefer to pay by check, please send to:
