“Taking Alexander Technique lessons with Bill has been one of the most important and rewarding decisions I have ever made. His instruction has helped me reach new levels of expression and technical freedom on my instrument that had been eluding me for many years. His work with me has not only had a profound effect on my abilities as a musician, but has also helped me eliminate the chronic back pain I had been experiencing for years.”
- Sasha Birrittella, Professional Guitarist and Music Educator

The Alexander Technique is a practical method of self-care that teaches you how to prevent excess muscular strain in your body. It has a well-founded reputation for helping people with chronic back pain and other chronic pain conditions. It is also highly effective in helping with balance and coordination. The Technique is applicable to any human activity, is completely safe to learn, and is useful to people of all ages, and from all walks of life.

Lessons in the Alexander Technique can help you do whatever you do, better: less strain and greater confidence in moving safely and efficiently. Whether you’re working at a computer, hammering a nail, cooking, dancing, walking, exercising, speaking, or making music, you can use the Alexander Technique to optimize your experience and improve your results.

Through the Alexander Technique, I have successfully helped people from a large variety of professions and lifestyles improve their conditions of chronic pain and impaired coordination. And, with over 35 years of experience as a professional musician, and with many years of combined experience teaching both music and teaching the Alexander Technique to musicians, actors and dancers, I bring a well-developed insight into the particular needs of the performing artist.
