Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I just watched your July video and it reminded me of something.

You mentioned the importance of posture and body awareness in general, and in particular you mentioned the Alexander Technique.

I was reminded of my college professor Alexandra Pierce at the University of Redlands. I took a class with her called Movement for Musicians and it changed my life in a number of ways. She later published several books on the subject but I think the most applicable here is Deepening Musical Performance through Movement, from Indiana University Press.

As a side note, while at Redlands John Jorgensen’s father Jim was my band director and conducting teacher. Some good memories there.
