Upcoming Workshops


Workshops are a wonderful way to immerse yourself in a field of new ideas and perspectives, as well as add new skills to your current professional endeavors, and even get CEU credits!  They are open to everyone, with no previous experience necessary.


Make the most of your trip to the ATCongress 2018!

There are 2 unique opportunities for study prior to the ATCongress 2018 this summer.  You can attend a week of advanced training in teaching AT to musicians, and a week of pre-Congress preparation and training in building successful introductory workshops with the Alexander Alliance International Directors.

Here is a link to the Alexander Alliance Pre-Congress Gathering:


Join Bruce, Robyn, Midori, and Margarete for a peaceful 4 day retreat in the middle of America’s farmlands, to share our past year’s projects, reflect on our present truths, and create the visions for our future as an Alliance.  We will take a few days together to…

  • prepare for the Congress (hands, thoughts, questions); how to make the most of it
  • update the community on each school’s new pedagogical material and projects
  • add another layer of Mentoring Trainers material
  • get training on building successful Intros and offer a one day Intro, in support of our young graduate Anita’s new practice in Iowa.

Here is a link to the CAS Musician’s Wellness Immersion for Alexander Teachers, happening just before the Gathering:


The Contemporary Alexander School, the USA branch of the Alexander Alliance International, is in residence at the internationally renowned Meadowmount School of Music, offering a unique opportunity for Alexander Teachers and Trainees to learn and practice advanced skills needed for teaching Alexander’s Principles to classical musicians.
