Since 1998, Jean-Louis Rodrigue and Kristof Konrad have taught the Alexander Technique program at the Verbier Festival and Academy, and they have insured that the Technique has gained importance by making it an indispensable part of the Festival and Academy. The Alexander program is open to all attending professional artists, orchestra members, and academy students.
Participants of the Academy are selected from the best conservatories around the world, who are destined for a professional career in the arts and are given the opportunity to learn from internationally renowned teachers.
This past summer besides teaching over 200 lessons for the Academy students and the orchestra members, Jean-Louis and Kristof worked with world acclaimed artists Martha Argerich, Michala Petri and Lars Hannibal to help them deal with the stress and tension experienced in rehearsals and performances.
