Benefits for Performers…

“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 (2019)
