Indirect Procedures

A Musician's Guide to the Alexander Technique


My first book, Indirect Procedures: A Musician's Guide to the Alexander Technique, with a foreword by Sir Colin Davis, was published by  Oxford University Press (OUP) in 1997. In the summer of 2013, OUP published a new edition, completely rewritten and redesigned.

The book has been very well received. Would you like to read some reviews?

The book is in three parts, covering the basic principles of the Alexander Technique, its practical procedures, and its applications to music-making. The Introduction is a good starting point both for readers who are already familiar with the Technique and for those who are coming to it for the first time.

The entire text of Indirect Procedures is available for consultation online at, a fee-based service.
