Alexander Technique has been taught at Oundle School for over 15 years. There are three Alexander Technique teachers who work with pupils in various ways:
- One to one lessons – this allows for individual work on specific issues, e.g. stage fright, body confidence
- Working in Pairs - pupils benefit from observing changes in their partner as well as sharing thoughts with their teacher.
- Group Classes – we work with groups ranging from 4 -20 as part of a weekly music practice afternoon
- Introductory Course for all new 11+ pupils. A short, ( 5 week), introductory course with groups of 8 pupils.
All Music Scholars and Music Exhibitioners are entitled to free lessons and all new Visiting Music Teachers are offered a short funded course of one to one lessons. Our Alexander Technique team also offer support through ensembles, orchestras and choirs. Alexander Technique teachers attend rehearsals and concerts, observe and feedback to both pupils and their music teachers. We also offer Alexander Technique support for pupils involved in our pioneering ‘String Playing in Balance’ programme.
