Workshop Alexander Techniek voor zangers

Deze workshop geef ik in samenwerking met Linor Oren , zangeres en stem coach van SingWell. Linor schrijft: “I remember moments during a singing lesson where I finally did something right. The teacher would yell in amazement at me: What did you just do?! I would be perplexed because the only I answer I had was: nothing.

 

It was a really strange, awkward moment of understanding. When singing is really good, it feels like you’re not doing anything. This is exactly the principle of Alexander technique.”

Docent: Maaike Aarts
Kosten: 25 euro incl. BTW voor een workshop van 1,5 uur

What makes Alexander Technique so good? Linor schrijft:

First, it focuses on awareness. If you don’t become aware of your body, you can have as many yoga lessons as you want, you wouldn’t be able to work with your body on your own. Alexander technique works first of all on that element of paying attention.

Second: because it’s working with your consciousness, it’s the easiest method to use in the long term. The benefits of Alexander last longer because they’re mental. You could get out of shape physically but Alexander’s principles will stay with you. 

It’s a process that will take quite some lessons. You are changing your approach to handling your body and how it moves. That does not happen in a couple of lessons. Alexander is about ​the way somewhere, not how to get to a certain goal. ​It’s not about sitting up straight, it’s all the steps on the way there and the thought process behind it.

It is good to try it out!
