Pete’s Blog – 5th December 2017- Alexander and the Internet

I suppose the time has come to comment on the use of the internet for teaching and propagating the Alexander Technique.  There are many versions of this, videos, Skype sessions, online courses.  Let me say one thing.  Good teaching is good teaching whether you agree with the content or not.  Thus, finding the right words with which to give feedback or to point the student in a particular direction is a skill which cuts across all other dimensions and if done well can assist the student’s learning.   Anything which might help to navigate the Alexander maze is welcome addition to the Alexander Community and probably even to the at least some individuals’ personal development.  The use of images and online interaction with  a teacher is a far cry from the “postal courses” which we of the “precise hands-on” fraternity of the 1960s used to mock.
