Embodied Voice

The Alexander Technique has a 100+ year-old history of helping singers and public speakers improve vocal quality and reduce performance anxiety. Frederick Mathias (F.M.) Alexander, the founder, was a Shakespearean actor plagued by chronic laryngitis brought on by excessive tension during performance. Alexander not only cured his own vocal problems, he developed an effective method of eliminating unnecessary habits of tension that could be used for anyone in any situation to improve their health and performance goals. A singer’s tight neck or jaw will cause the voice to become less resonant. Public speakers at the effect of ‘stage fright’ experience tightness of breath and shakiness caused by uncontrolled tension. By releasing unwanted tension in the body, the Alexander Technique makes possible a performance which is more fluid and lively. Anxiety and stress are replaced by confidence, poise, and presence!
