I started studying AT in 1992 - I had played the piano since I was 6 and spent a lot of my life writing music and playing in rock and jazz bands alongside my career as a research engineer. But I got to a point where I realised that my playing was never going to get any better no matter how much I practised because of tension in my shoulders and hands. Fortunately, I came across the AT and started having lessons with Malcolm Williamson at the Royal Northern College of Music. The bad habits started to drop away and I quickly realised that AT gave me a way of working on myself which I’m still using today. I completed the three year full time training at the Manchester Alexander Teacher Training School in 2013.
