My first experience of the Alexander Technique was as a professional pianist with back pain (a common occurrence amongst professional musicians or anyone using their bodies in the same muscular patterns day after day).

The pain disappeared fairly quickly but my interest continued. I explored a new relationship to piano playing and generally began to realise the life changes and the depths that the Technique could offer me. I decided to train – with Barbara in Glasgow - and have now been enjoying teaching, and continuing to explore, since 1997.

I work mainly at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow, teaching the Technique to instrumentalists and singers and also teaching piano.I also work in Hillhead with both musicians and non-musicians.
