An Alexander Technique Approach to Performing Musicians and Exercise
It has been my intention in this ebook to present exercise for performing musicians as a form of cross training. Whether you are playing an instrument or singing or lifting weights or running, these activities should be done with great posture, so you don’t sacrifice your body, and making music and exercise should enhance each other. This means that how you play your instrument or sing will affect how you exercise and visa versa. Perform on your instrument and exercise or do yoga, allowing all of these activities to enhance each other. In looking at running, swimming, yoga, and weightlifting in this ebook, I applied Alexandrian principles of great technique and good posture.
