Robert Rickover and Ann Shoebridge
Show Notes

Ann Shoebridge, an Alexander Technique teacher and physiotherapist in Melbourne, Australia, talks with Robert Rickover about the spectrum of advice musicians receive about posture from music teachers, from physical therapists, and from Alexander Technique teachers. Ann's recent study, "Minding the Body: An interdisciplinary theory of optimal posture for musicians", published in the Psychology of Music Journal, draws together the combined expertise of these three professional groups to define optimal posture for musicians, and to present approaches to optimal posture that support musicians' performance and health.
