Are you interested in learning how to access more ease, creativity, expression, clarity, and JOY in your playing, singing, or teaching? How to stay calm, cool, and connected while practicing, performing, auditioning, conducting an ensemble, or even just in your music lesson? How to make mistakes and recover with resilience? How to prevent or recover from an injury? The Alexander Technique is for you!

Taught by AmSAT-certified Alexander Technique instructor Katie Fittipaldi (Eastman School of Music), this weeklong session is an introduction to the basic principles of the Alexander Technique, an educational method used by musicians worldwide to enhance practice and performance, prevent injuries and pain, and overcome performance anxiety.
