At the Alexander Teacher Training School: learning to blow into the clarinet without over-arching my back

How does the Alexander Technique relate to clarinet playing? The most obvious connection is breathing. Wind players should allow their back to breathe as well as the front and the sides of the chest. Your back can get tight and sore due to tense breathing habits. With the help of the Alexander Technique you will be able to use more of your lung capacity with less effort.
