Utrecht Alexander Technique Institute for Musicians

The teachers of the Utrecht Alexander Technique Institute for Musicians have given lessons to students and faculty of the Utrecht Conservatory since 1996. Our years of experience with musicians may be of use to you as well in making progress with your technique or playing comfort.

The Alexander Technique has been recognised as an important foundation for the professional skills of the performing artist. For this reason it is part of the curriculum at many conservatories, dance and theatre schools worldwide. We give private lessons to all interested musicians, professional and amateur. Our teachers are available for presentations and workshops. 


The Utrecht Alexander Technique Institute for Musicians (UATIM) was founded in 1996 to provide lessons in the Alexander Technique to students of the Utrecht Conservatory, in the Netherlands. The Alexander Technique helps the musician to develop skills of good coordination and poise that contribute to a healthy instrument or vocal technique. By complementing musical study with lessons in the Alexander Technique, the performer can learn to call forth the specific energy required for music making without creating unnecessary mental and muscular tension. Those learning to teach gain insights about themselves which help them to observe their students more clearly.

Lessons in the Alexander Technique can help you build up the knowledge and conditions in yourself to lead a healthier life as a professional performing and teaching artist.

If you are not studying at the Utrecht Conservatory, but would like to take lessons in the Alexander Technique, please contact the coordinator, Crissman Taylor, and she can put you in touch with one of our teachers and their private practice in different cities in the Netherlands.
