Alexander Technique and Linklater Voice Work expert Geordie MacMinn empowers School of Drama students to find and express themselves with their own voice. In addition to his Alexander Technique certification, MacMinn earned two post-graduate teacher certifications from the American Center for the Alexander Technique, NYC: The Art of Breathing with Jessica Wolf in 2003 and The Carrington Way of Working with John Nicholls in 2004.
My philosophy of teaching is to work with the artist as a human being first, and as an actor second. The technique is to educate the connections: self to self, self to others, and self to audience.
