Student Quotes

“I like the simplicity and repetitiveness of the lessons. They drill good habits into you and help your mind to slowly start applying Alex tech to your daily life”
“I enjoyed AT lessons very much this academic year! It helped me a lot for both my piano playing and daily posture. So I really wish that I can have chance to continue this lessons next year. At last. I very much appreciate my AT teacher Vicky who gave me the wonderful experiences”

‘Early in my professional career the celebrated conductor Sir Adrian Boult, who had himself had Alexander lessons, sent me for lessons in the Technique. 'My boy,' he said, 'you'll end up crippled if you go on like that.' I have been a pupil of the Technique now for over forty years, the benefits to me have been immeasurable, and I would recommend all students to take advantage of the programme of lessons available at the Royal Academy of Music.’
The late Sir Colin Davis CBE, Hon RAM, former International Chair of Conducting and Orchestral Studies

‘Before I studied in London I had not known about the Alexander Technique. I can thank the Royal Academy of Music for helping me discover the Technique and all its benefits. I had lessons for eighteen months and I feel that I changed a lot very positively. I think now that the Alexander Technique is one of the greatest things for a musician — and not only for your playing but also for your whole life.’
