Two weeks ago, the University of Iowa School of Music hosted its first guest trumpet artist of the year, Judith Saxton. She is a certified Alexander Technique Instructor (ATI) as well as an extremely experienced trumpeter in both orchestral and solo settings.
During her visit, she shared with members of UI the school of music and the local community a wonderful experience of Alexander Technique in the early afternoon. Rather than explaining to everyone what Alexander technique is, she had all of the participants experience it first-hand.
Later, in the evening, she held a masterclass for members of the UI trumpet studio and local trumpeters within the community.
