The Alexander Technique

Interview with Marisa De Silva

Did you know that the Alexander Technique was developed by an actor over 100 years ago to reduce vocal fatigue?

 As part of IVA’s Health and Wellness month, this exclusive video features IVA Teacher Alida Annicchiarico as she interviews Alexander Technique expert Marisa De Silva about how practicing natural and healthy movement can support your voice and your students’ vocal—and overall—wellness.

Marisa discusses how kinesthetic awareness and adjusting your posture through the Alexander Technique can improve your singing by reducing unnecessary tension, refining tone, and achieving vocal balance.
