Who Else Wants
TheCoachingClub™ (TCC) is a “Q&A” style masterclass perfect for any Alexander teacher who would like to refine their skills (like hands-on), add new tools to their repertoire or increase their ability to reach more students
The research I’ve been doing into the viability of a totally HandsFree approach to Alexander teaching has yielded some very powerful methods & strategies that have proven valuable to teachers however they choose to teach.
These ways of working harken back to the original methods Alexander created to solve his vocal problems, make his discoveries and to teach himself and others.They are informed & inspired by “Evolution of a Technique” in The Use of the Self.
They are procedures that leverage observation and experimentation as the chief engines of change. They build confidence, self-reliance and as a result accelerate the progress of both students and teachers.
TheCoachingClub is all about problem solving. The curriculum is super practical because it always centers around the specific challenges that members are facing every day in their teaching.
I’ve been coaching and training Alexander teachers for over 35 years, and I draw upon that experience to create a challenging but collegial atmosphere that is both serious and light-hearted. Intense at times, but always supportive & accepting. Did I mention that we have fun?
The Club is a community learning lab. A collaborative space online where A.T. teachers from across the globe can gather each week to share questions and find answers together. As the “Learner-In-Chief” I lead the charge, but so much of the magic is in what happens between us; colleague to colleague, peer-to-peer.

Perhaps the most useful of these tools is a simple yet dynamic approach to constructive thinking and directing called: 3 Useful Questions.
3 Useful Questions is the method I use to teach students how to facilitate the head-neck reflex on their own without hands-on guidance.
Using questions instead of directions, students learn how to inhibit their interference with their coordination through conscious but indirect control.
This gives primacy to their natural inborn movement intelligence which automatically circumvents their habitual response.
The approach accelerates their learning and empowers the student in a way that both deepens their understanding and sustains their interest in continuing to learn more.
However, perhaps even more exciting is the effect that 3 Useful Questions has on the teaching process itself. It gives the teacher a highly accurate way to monitor themselves while teaching while sharpening observation and clarifying sensory appreciation and the expression of direction.
Each 90 minute class will be a problem-solving session addressing the kind of specific teaching
challenges that you face every day when you’re teaching. We’ll also be taking a look some new ways of approaching A variety of other subjects including group teaching, observation, marketing and teaching online.
