   schema:reviewBody ""The problems of a musician have many causes and many possible solutions. While working conditions, stress, and instrument and furniture design are all significant factors, the most important aspect remains not what is done to musicians, but what they do to themselves."--BOOK JACKET. "F. M. Alexander (1869-1955) saw the individual as a whole, and talked not of 'the body', but of 'the self', not of 'posture', but of 'use'. The aim of the Alexander Technique is not to teach you to do what is right, but to help you stop doing what is wrong, through a series of practical procedures which awaken your awareness of the way you use yourself and allow you to develop your innate potential. The Technique can be applied to all areas of musical activity, from instrumental and vocal technique, sound production, and interpretation, to daily practice, rehearsal routines, and the mitigating of stage fright and other health problems. This book, by an experienced professional musician and Alexander teacher, is the first to deal specifically with the applications of the Technique to music making."--BOOK JACKET." ;
