After her first Alexander Technique lesson, she experienced greater improvements to her playing than anything prompted by her clarinet teacher. As a result, she became a certified Alexander teacher, obtained a degree in music therapy, and has trained for the past twenty years in the Diamond Path of Life with holistic medical pioneer John Diamond M.D.
