Kevin Wooding trained with Elisabeth Walker, finishing in 1998. He teaches privately at his studio in Jericho, Oxford and also in London near Richmond. Coming from a performing background in Classical and Jazz piano, he found the Alexander Technique a vital tool in bringing maximum efficiency and expressiveness to performance - but originally came to the technique due to a persistent knee injury.
There was a period of about four years when I couldn't ride a bike, couldn't sit down without pain and certainly couldn't kneel. I had lessons with Rob MacDonald in 1988 - 1990 and through these lessons the easy use of my knee returned. I tell a bit more about this story in the Case History section.
I trained with Elisabeth Walker, who was trained directly by F. M. Alexander, and I qualified in 1998. Elisabeth is always a great advertisement for the technique. She told me a year ago that she had 'just done her last international workshop' having recently returned to the UK from the United States. The fact that she is past her mid-nineties is hardly worth mentioning - to her!
I always remember that the freedom and ease that she enjoys to this grand stage of her life is available to all.
