    Somatics for Musicians ©

    is an educational method which creates a foundation for musicians’ cognitive and movement education. The knowledge acquired during a typical lesson prevents musculo-skeletal problems and enhances musicians’ knowledge on movement and choreography at a high level. Virtuosity thus becomes a natural process.

    Athletes or Virtuosos?

    A musician’s routine be it a student, performer or teacher, demands of the physical body feats similar to those of a champion athlete. Overuse of the same muscles for prolonged practice sessions as well as fixture of the same posture during practice, performance and improvisation can cause musculo-skeletal problems.

    Finding solutions

    Why can’t I play a piece after having practiced it nonstop? Why can’t I always sing effortlessly? I always follow exactly what my teachers say. I’ve been playing with the same correct technique for years and never had a problem. Why has a problem occurred suddenly? I’ve changed nothing in my practice routine!

    Alexander Technique

    "For in the mind of man lies the secret of his ability to resist, to conquer and finally to govern the circumstance of his life, and only by the discovery of that secret will he ever be able to realise completely the perfect codnition of mens sana in corpore sano"

    F. M. Alexander – Man’s Supreme Inheritance

    Philosophy of the Method

    According to Dr Donald Weed, one of the main discoveries of F.M. Alexander was a new category of problems: propriogenic problems, or problems that are the result of something that we are doing to ourselves.
