Previous lessons, interview and some lessons with Head of Training. We welcome applications from students of all ages. We provide a classical training, whilst fully acknowledging, and working with the demands of modern life.
Lots of individual attention and work in small groups in a supportive and friendly atmosphere is designed to lead students to becoming confident practitioners and teachers. There is a regular daily timetable that includes two one-to-one mini- lessons with a senior teacher. Our course follows STAT guidelines so 80% is practical. The theoretical component of the course will be interwoven with the daily practical work.
The course includes specific modules in the following areas:
FM Alexander's writings and other relevant texts
Video to teach observational skills
How to set up a teaching practice and how to present Alexander to the public
How to teach actors and musicians
Voicework for singers and other professions
How to run introductory groups for business and other clients
Hands-on sensitivity and skills are developed throughout the course through games, small groups, and one-to-one teaching.
Students have the opportunity to work with different teachers and visitors to the class.
In the third year students will do supervised work with members of the public.
We aim to teach students inner stillness both for their own benefit and as the foundation for a lifetime of teaching.
We are sympathetic to the needs of family and work and reflect this in our in-house philosophy, course structure and timetable.
