While living in Stockholm I began experiencing vocal issues and lower-back pain. As luck would have it, my piano teacher Mr Hellstrand trained as an Alexander Teacher. I had Alexander Technique lessons as well as regular piano lessons. I had lie-downs daily and read the few published works of F.M. Alexander.
I became aware of how habitual tendencies were interfering with my day to day living. After finishing a course of lessons, Mr Hellstrand introduced me to his AT teacher, Mr Hallmark. an English expat and actor. After graduating from LAMDA Hallmark studied the technique with Mr. Carrington who was F.M. Alexander’s assistant and dux at the original Training Course. I left for London to learn the Technique at CTC. 2016 I graduated as a Certified Alexander Technique Teacher and joined the largest Society of AT Teachers – STAT
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible, is music.
The teacher is only a guide to help the student learn to think and do for himself
We think too much and feel too little
"Learning How To Learn" is what distinguishes the Alexander Technique
The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place
Love many things, for therein lies the true strength
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
Anyone can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand. Intuitive design is how we give the user new superpowers.
Success is getting what you want, happiness is wanting what you get. Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
What separates design from art is that design is meant to be functional.
