In my first year at University I was offered the chance to work with the students at BAS every Tuesday for half an hour. I signed up immediately for the year and didn’t regret it at any point. I was having trouble with my back and neck at the time, and was practising saxophone for around three hours a day. I immediately warmed to my teacher who helped me feel incredibly comfortable and I felt amazingly awake and competent through the simple yet new and refreshing work in those sessions. I learnt things that I could take out with me in the world and apply immediately. These made a marked difference to my confidence and ability in my studies/performance, as well as in my social life. In particular, Alexander helped me deal calmly and practically with the challenges of first year student life, I felt more grounded and this helped me through turbulent times. If I could have an Alexander session every morning I would do so.
