Miss Alexandra Westcott

BA Performing Arts
Instruments: Piano
Genre/Style(s): Classical,
practice skills
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I studied intensively with Nelly Ben Or, the leading exponent of the principles of the Alexander Technique in relation to the piano, and this work informs my own playing and my teaching, in which I try to nurture freedom and clarity. I teach adult restarters and beginners, and advanced students, and encourage a firm commitment in the foundation of piano, including technique, note reading, theory, harmony, improvisation, practice skills, and jazz.

I can offer consultations online or in person to anyone stuck with progress in their playing and make suggestions for those seeking a more dynamic yet intimate relationship with their instrument, one unhindered by unhelpful reactions and responses.

I am a Fellow of the ISM, sitting as a member on the committee of the North London section, and for 10 years I was the ABRSM rep for Muswell Hill in North London, providing the local AB exam centre. Please see my website for detailed information on my teaching, including articles on Advice for Parents; Piano and the Alexander Technique.

I have written a book for young students thinking about entering the piano teaching profession and have written numerous articles about aspects of teaching or playing the piano, both for an online blog and also for an online music teacherís magazine.
