The 2019 summer intensive at ATsinging (Alexander Technique & Singing): designed for you!

Is there a difference between what you know you're capable of and what you do in performance? Do you know that you could sing more freely, easily, and beautifully, but old habits keep getting in the way? Would you like a more accurate anatomical understanding of your own body and how it works when you sing, breathe, stand, and walk? Are you looking for a training program that provides the kind of daily private instruction that seems like a hallmark of the great singers of the past? Interested in the Alexander Technique but never had the time or money to study? The summer intensive at ATsinging (Alexander Technique & Singing) was designed for you. For the price of one credit at most universities, come see how AT can help you gain conscious control of your voice and artistry. Apply today!
