dj-marty“Monday Morning Musicians’ Meeting”
I regularly teach a class to help musicians by applying the Alexander Technique to their work.  This photo shows one of my Alexander teachers, Marty Hjortshoj, helping me with my poise at my bass.

We’ll be playing with sitting, standing, and holding your instrument. Find out how the Alexander Technique can be a constant influence to improve your comfort and your performance. This is an opportunity to drop in regularly and get an Alexander mini-lesson, and also learn from observing the lessons of others.

Class size: 4 to 6 people. All are welcome; this class will focus on musicians.

Mondays, 11 am-12:30 pm
Cost: Just $30 for one class / $150 for a set of five.
