An amazingly generous offer.

I hope ,  I urge all female violinists and viola players to take up Kristin Mozeiko`s fantastic offer in her blog (research Participants needed).   I went to her web site to see how many free lessons she was actually offering .  I know it almost always takes a minimum of ten for people to begin getting the hang of AT and what it is about.  I couldn`t believe it when I read she is going to offer twenty,  and twice a week to boot... It`s the chance of a lifetime.

Get signed up now.

Good on yer,  Kristin.

This is probably ever the only time I will say that I wish I was a female. :(

Yes you are right! I  sent her an email with a little description of my situation. However I am not sure if she wants  a  "busy (with non violin stuff also) but passionnated amateur that happens to have "natural" annoying  tension because of physionomy issues even if very conscious of it. "   I am afraid I am not suited for such studies but who knows if ever she wants violinists of all situations (amateurs, professionnals, busy people etc)  I'll see this in her answer!

Yes, what a kind offer!!!


lol Dimitri !!! I love to be a female and wouldn't change but I find life is a little more complicated (even when we don't want I swear) and maybe not always fair for us!!! Am I wrong?  Well, completely off topic. May we keep the wonderful topic of this thread!!!  But if you insist, put a wig and take a pic, she'll maybe take you... (just joking!!!)

I'm the right gender, but too old :(

However, I will add my support to the idea that Alexander Technique can be a great help for back and neck pain due to tension.  I took some Alexander lessons on my own about 15 years ago that made a big difference.

Thank you Buri and all for the endorsement. I still need (at least) 40 more female violinists/violists (18-25) living in the NYC area. I am being supported by 8 other wonderful Alexander teachers located in diferent areas of the city to in order to geographically match students with the teachers.  Please contact me at or visit my website for the official advertisement.

Thanks again for passing the word along and (for those who are interested) I will keep you updated on the research and results. (I will accept up to 70 participants-35 control group/35 experimental group)-The control will also get 2 free lessons after the study is complete, the experimental group will receive two 30 minute lessons a week for 10 weeks-YES 20 FREE LESSONS.

Be Well,
