I became interested in the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais after many years studying movement, particularly Tai Chi, and Martha Graham-based dance. I graduated from the first British Feldenkrais Professional Training Programme in 1990, and am still involved in the U.K. training programmes as both an administrator, and an experienced practitioner, giving individual lessons to trainee practitioners up to the present day. I have many years experience teaching Feldenkrais, and Feldenkrais-based voicework, both privately, and in Colleges, Universites and Adult Education Centres in the U.K. and abroad.

I have been singing professionally in the popular music field since 1983, and teaching voice and singing to a wide variety of students, including professional and trainee actors, since 1988. I enjoy most kinds of singing but I get the greatest pleasure from Jazz and improvisation.

Since qualifying as a Feldenkrais teacher, my ongoing project has been to develop a comprehensive awareness-based voice and singing teaching system, using the Feldenkrais approach. To this end I have explored many modern voice teaching methods, focusing particularly on the work of Jo Estill, a highly-respected pioneer in the field of voice training, and Alison Bagnall, an Australian Feldenkrais practitioner, speech therapist, and early collaborator of Estill’s. The VocalDynamix Workshop series is the culmination of my years of study, and my personal vocal exploration and development.

"Where else can you find help with organising your body that is both intuitive and deeply intelligent? As a connoisseur of the Feldenkrais Method® I have identified Maggy Burrowes as one of the foremost U.K. practitioners."
