what joining ATsinging’s summer NYC intensive can mean
for you and your singing.

The unity of breath, alignment and word is like three children playing in a ring...If one lets go, all become helpless.

ATsinging Intro for All (morning, morning & afternoon)
May 16-23 2020

ATsinging Professional
May 16-June 6 2020

The Summer NYC Intensive seeks to introduce a generation of singers and singing teachers to how the Alexander Technique can give you back your voice, artistry, and agency, so that you can sing with the freedom, ease, and joy you always knew was possible. Three tracks are available to serve different budgets, schedules, and interests.

1) ATsinging Intro for All Mornings (morning group class 10am-12pm only) May 16-23 2020

For singers and speakers of all levels interested in learning how the Alexander Technique can make their speaking and singing easier, freer, more beautiful, and pain free, who are interested in exploring the concepts in a group format that requires only a morning commitment and less money. Every student receives a “turn”, aka an Alexander & Singing mini-lesson (approx 15 minutes) during each class, plus the major principle of the day shared through exploration, games, discovery, lectures, anatomy, Q&A and more.

2) ATsigning Intro for All Mornings & Afternoons (morning group class plus afternoon private lessons & master class, 10am-5pm) May 16-23 2020

For singers and speakers of all levels interested in learning how the Alexander Technique can make their speaking and singing easier, freer, more beautiful, and pain free, who are interested in exploring the concepts in greater depth, by attending the group class in the morning and having private lessons in the afternoons, and an end of day group performance master class with pianists, where you can try out all of the ideas in the full practice of performing.

2) ATsinging Professional
May 16 - June 6 2020

For a select group of singers all on partial scholarship thanks to a generous anonymous donor, this program provides the depth and breadth of instruction to begin to change some of your most deeply ingrained habits in your thinking, body use, and voice, as well as the connections between them.

Fellows selected for the program attend the opening week of ATintro (May 16-23) focused solely on Alexander Technique & voice work. Fellows then continue for the second and third weeks, exploring the Alexander and voice work in more depth and starting to connect it to their full performances by coaching 2-3 songs or arias with expert musical and dramatic coaches while receiving simultaneous hands-on-guidance from an Alexander Technique instructor. The program culminates in a final performance.
