My first Alexander Technique class was in April 1999, with Ron Murdock. I actually went for a singing class, looking to improve control of my own voice and breathing. Ron was a tenor, and a wonderful teacher in both subjects, the voice and the Alexander Technique.
Since my graduation (ATON – Alexandertechniek Opleiding Nederland April / 2004) I have been teaching popular, jazz and classical singers, instrumentalists and musicians, and dancers, as well as people who suffer from stress and / or chronic pain due to misuse of the body . I was also recognized as a therapist specialized in somatic education and breathing techniques by the Dutch association VBAG, in 2011.
