Understanding the use of your voice; movement classes; discussion groups and talks; video study; student presentations building up to introductory talks on the Alexander Technique.
learning how to use your hands in teaching. Observational and verbal skills development. Teaching skills, including how to set up a private practice.
In their third year, trainees progress to giving supervised lessons to members of the public in class time; they give talks and teach music students at Bristol University.
Home study and written work varies from one to four hours a week. There is an optional post graduate teaching term of one day a week.
