The Alexander Technique (at) is a somatic method that teaches its students to alter the way they move, to enhance day-to-day activities, including playing a musical instrument (Conable & Conable 1995; Klein, Bayard & Wolf 2014). Students are taught several key principles to help them change their movement patterns through indirect means (i.e., without actively trying to change movement or posture). These principles are primary control, inhibition, direction, habit, and faulty sensory awareness. Students’ understanding of how to alter their use of the body are based on these ideas, so these principles will be briefly defined from an at perspective.
