PRESENTER

"The Embodied Musician: An Integrative Approach to Alexander Technique and Collegiate Music Performance" 

Principal Investigator: Dr. Donna Brink Fox

Co-Principal Investigator: Stephania Romaniuk

1:30 p.m. EST

College Music Society: 64th National Conference

Presentation Abstract:

The Alexander Technique (AT) is a holistic approach to optimizing musculoskeletal coordination and has been taught in American music schools and conservatories since the 1980s. Traditionally, music students receive AT instruction apart from their main-instrument lessons, and their studio teachers may not be familiar with AT. In the Oslo Model of integrative AT instruction, developed by AT instructor Stephen Parker in Norway, both students and their studio teachers take private AT lessons with a certified AT instructor, and in additional joint sessions, the AT instructor and faculty member teach students collaboratively.

 

The purpose of this qualitative case study was to explore how integrating the Oslo Model into collegiate music performance instruction influences learner outcomes for participating music students and their studio teachers and its feasibility at an American conservatory. Participants included three music faculty with three students each, and one AT instructor. Each faculty and student received ten private AT lessons and participated in six collaborative group sessions over one academic year. Qualitative data were collected through questionnaires, interviews, and observation notes at three large group meetings.

 

Students and faculty reported greater physical ease and mental resilience in their practice, performance, and teaching, and mutual empowerment through integrative AT instruction, which assuaged the negative effects of a stressful academic environment. Additionally, the AT instructor reported greater capacity to support learner outcomes by being more central rather than peripheral in the learning environment. Findings from this study have implications for music educators and administrators, particularly in post-secondary institutional settings.
