Janet Davies Janet Davies

Janet Davies studied violin in Sydney with Eva Kelly, Robert Pikler, Dorel Tincu and Alice Waten. As a professional violinist, she played with the Australian Chamber Orchestra. In 1986 she completed a three year teacher-training course in the Alexander Technique, and later traveled to New York, London and Amsterdam to observe violin teachers (Dorothy Delay, Felix Andrievsky, Coosje Wijzenbeek) and undertake post-graduate Alexander work. Currently she teaches violin and pedagogy at Sydney Conservatorium and also works privately with a wide range of student and professional musicians. A large number of her ex-students work as professional musicians and teachers in Australia and internationally.
Over the last two decades Janet has developed her own violin teaching method based on the philosophy of the Alexander Technique. Through this unique and innovative teaching method and her wealth of experience as a violin teacher, she is able to make the Alexander Technique accessible to violinists for immediate improvements in playing.
