Dr. Charlotte Anderson has combined her many years of experience as a voice teacher with her knowledge of the Alexander Technique to offer a unique instructional program that can be tailored to meet individual needs. Her clients include vocal and instrumental performers, actors, and public speakers, as well as others seeking help with posture, range of motion, balance, coordination, and pain and stress management.
In 1993, Dr. Anderson graduated with a doctorate in vocal performance and pedagogy from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. She has performed extensively in opera, recital, oratorio and symphonic song. As a voice instructor, Dr. Anderson has, in addition to her studio work, served on the faculty of Towson University, East Tennessee State University, Emory and Henry College, and Virginia Intermont College. In 2003, she completed a 1600 hour, three year training program to become a certified Alexander Technique teacher. Since then, Dr. Anderson has presented workshops on the integration of vocal and instrumental performance with body awareness through the Alexander Technique. These workshops have included presentations at the West Coast Clarinet Congress in Honolulu, Hawaii, the University of Tennessee Opera Program, music programs at San Francisco State University, Milligan College, Emory and Henry College, the International Suzuki Flute Institute and an extended contract for Alexander Technique instruction at the Barter Theatre in Virginia.
Dr. Anderson is currently providing instruction in voice and training in the Alexander Technique at her studio in Kingsport, Tennessee.
