Many actors, singers and public speakers know about the importance of the diaphragm for clear voice production. However, most performers and speakers have a lack of anatomical expertise or understand the full workings and location of the diaphragm. The Alexander Technique can greatly help performers get the best out of their craft.

Having lessons will enable you to allow your diaphragm to work freely and in harmony with the rest of your system. A strong diaphragm will affect the power, range and colour of your voice and breathing.
