Overview of the Options

There are, at present, four levels of academic study in the Alexander Technique at the RCM.

The normal development would see a student take level 4 in their first year at the RCM.

Levels 5 and 6 can be chosen as academic options during the third and fourth undergraduate years.

Postgraduates are considered for inclusion on the level 6 course if they have some knowledge of the technique before coming to the RCM. If they are not experienced in the Technique they can take the level 7 course.

Alexander lessons, not for academic credit, are also available on request, these are 30 minute lessons usually shared with one other student. Contact: peter.buckoke@rcm.ac.uk
