What people are saying…

‘The Alexander Technique is the most powerful tool for relaxation & proper economy of effort in our daily activities, that I have experienced. I look forward to reinforcing its simple yet desirable benefits.‘ 
– Thomas O’Rourke

‘Unnecessary tension at the piano, other than contributing to inefficient learning and bad playing, can result in discomfort, irregular breathing, difficulty acquiring velocity, and distracting mannerisms.
‘I sought Mary McCann for hands-on training in the Alexander Technique hoping to find a way to deal with habits of tension accrued over several years of piano study.
‘In just a few weeks I began to experience a great deal of positive and welcome change. It is no exaggeration to say that Mary’s training rescued my interest in the piano from slow possible extinction.
‘I recommend the Alexander Technique without reservation. It is particularly effective under the guidance of a highly-experienced professional instructor like Mary McCann.’
– Jose R. Pardinas,PhD

At the Wilma Studio School Open House last night, I watched in semi-amazement as one person after another would glide away from Mary McCann’s…table with the same serene grin on their face. They all seemed amazed by how transformed they were after just 10 minutes with Mary. “I’m so relaxed right now,” “she’s incredible,” and “WOW…” were some of the comments I heard…ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE is an essential component of most actor training programs. Mary McCann has a rare and magical gift.’ 
– Anne K. Holmes, Education Director, The Wilma Theater, Philadelphia, PA

 ‘One of the most surprising things I learned is that I didn’t have to work so hard.’ 
-Meghan Malloy (Actor)

‘Thank you for your generosity, patience, and knowledge in all things “Alexander.” I feel relaxed and natural already.’ 
– Jessica, (Designer)
