What is the Alexander Technique at Boston Conservatory at Berklee?

The Alexander Technique (AT) is an investigation into human reaction.  And what makes that exciting is that we investigate OUR OWN reactions—not just the generic ones.  We learn to observe ourselves in such a way that we become free to choose responses outside of our habitual network.  And that experience can be life changing!

At Boston Conservatory at Berklee, we spend most of our time investigating responses to performance situations—whether a studio class, an audition, or a performance, we explore the best ways to prepare for these events so that we can be the best artist we can be under potentially stressful situations.

In addition to the work we do with musicians, dancers and actors here, we also train AT teachers to carry this work into the world. Having the skills to teach this work can be a perfect complement to a performing career. It keeps your self-awareness honed; it spreads this work to a population that understands and fully appreciates its usefulness; it provides additional income to what can be a financially volatile career.

We are fortunate to have several faculty and staff at Boston Conservatory and Berklee who are trained as AT teachers.  Let’s introduce you:

Diane Hovenesian

We also have faculty currently in the AT training course who will soon be added to this list.

We hope you will enjoy our posts.

Here’s to the exploration!
