Thread Name: Singing - Alexander Technique
Subject: Singing - Alexander Technique
A couple of days ago McGrath of Harlow mentioned Tom McConville and The Alexander Technique.

At Whitby Festival Tom ran a workshop on The Alexander Technique in relation to singers - He is a fully qualified teacher of A.T.

After 45 minutes of a general nature he worked on three singers - a professional singer, her daughter and a volunteer from the audience.

The results were spectacular.

In each case amongst other things the singers tone became much purer and clearer.Work is however required to maintain this improvement which is where further tuition comes in.

Anyone interested in a sampler should keep a look out for such workshops. I hope that you too will find it beneficial.
