Shamarra, Harpist and Harp teacher, BM Graduate 2021
You give very generously, in a way which allows me to immerse in the anatomical journey. The pre-recorded videos, classes, notes and reference text give lots of repetition and opportunities to deepen my learning. Specific clues into how to implement and put it into action are very valuable – like your riff today on RH/LH torsion in using a screwdriver.
Clare, Musician and Music teacher, BM Graduate 2020
I have had huge improvements in my posture and gained an awareness of my body that I lacked before. This awareness helps me move and perform in a more organised and effortless manner.
In anything we do our whole body is involved, (so) it only makes sense to understand how our body coordinates, in order to achieve the desired movement or technique in our actions.
Renato, teacher/performer, BM Graduate 2020
The flexibility of module delivery has ensured that my study can easily fit into my very busy schedule.
The one-on-one classes are fantastic to catch-up on missed lectures/workshops
Greg is an incredible teacher. He is always available, and his knowledge is second to none.
Yvonne, Pianist and Piano teacher, BM Graduate 2020
I was inspired by the simple motion and instructions that were given by Greg during the workshop at the Australasian Piano Pedagogy Conference 2019. I was amazed at how there is more movability, and it made me curious about the Bodyminded training programme.
I see piano students who used to have poor posture gain more support through the instructions given to them. I’ve applied that in my own practice at the piano and cello playing. I do find more freedom in movement when playing. And also in my piano teaching
Sarah, Pilates Teacher, BM Graduate 2021
The anatomy notes are very user-friendly. I have studied anatomy before, but these notes, and the practical sessions which support them, really bring the human body to life. Key points in the notes gave me a clearer understanding of human movement, more than a regular anatomy textbook.
This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for everyone. However, because the course is already partially delivered online, it moved onto full online learning, which has proved to be successful. Through online tutorials and Zoom meetings, participants have got to know each other, and feel supported and connected.

I also notice a difference when I play piano – it also feels much more free and it’s easy and enjoyable to do, much more so than I have ever experienced. I feel a bit ripped off that it’s taken nearly 40 years of piano playing for me to finally learn this. My piano teachers never taught me anything much about this, or even about good piano technique in general! A big learning experience for me as a teacher as well.
Michelle Griffin, Instrumentalist, singer and teacher
These skills have become invaluable to my teaching, as I find I am able to better assess any difficulties in movement that a student may be facing. Promoting freedom of movement at an early stage of learning ensures that a student has fewer physical problems further down the track. I have found Alexander Technique work with Greg Holdaway to be invaluable to my work as a musician and teacher, and would unreservedly recommend it to others.
