"Several years ago my doctors advised me to give up fiddle playing as it was the prime cause of a continuing shoulder problem. After seeing an Alexander practitioner who corrected a lifetime of bad posture and playing style, I made a full and lasting recovery. So impressed was I with the technique, I enrolled on a 3-year full-time course to become a practitioner myself. Since qualifying I've worked with hundreds of people, a lot of them musicians, to enhance their stage performances and quality of life in general. Several soloists and orchestras have sought my help as a practitioner who is sympathetic to their particular needs. I run regular surgeries and workshops.
