Alexander lessons with Lilly have helped me play trumpet in a much more relaxed manner. Lilly showed me where I was holding tension in my body—tension of which I was previously unaware.

I have a much better awareness of how I move, and how my body is designed to work.

I am enjoying my life and my playing more than ever thanks to my lessons with Lilly.

Lilly is the best!

No matter how I feel when I arrive,

I always leave my lessons feeling happier, healthier, lighter and much more relaxed.

 After the very first lesson,

posture problems I'd struggled with

(and felt self-conscious about) my entire adult life began to effortlessly melt away.

I would recommend Alexander lessons with Lilly Sutton to anyone!

It's about getting out of your own way... I often laugh with Lilly because the learning is like child's play, simple and fun but profound.
