Alexander and his work

F M Alexander (1869-1955) developed his technique in the search for a solution to vocal problems that were jeopardising his career as an actor and professional reciter.

His endeavours were so successful that he went on to teach what he had learnt to countless other people for over fifty years.

He published four books about his work, and in the 1930s began to formally train others to teach his work.

The Alexander Technique is now well established and internationally recognised as a tool for improving performance and for preventing and alleviating stress related symptoms, occupational aches and pains and excess muscular tension.

It is widely used in the worlds of art, music, entertainment and sport and is taught in music and drama colleges throughout the world, including the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where I teach.
