“Penny works with wit incorporated in the lead-up to every one of our shows. Her understanding of animal work as a means to access a character’s core and further understand their relationship with those around them is amazing. She helps us to develop a deeper understanding of our place within the ensemble and a more connected existence as characters. It adds a complexity and sense of reality that we might not otherwise find.”

— Jennifer Piper, wit incorporated

“Penny McDonald introduced me to the Alexander Technique as a student at the Australian National Academy of Music. I have continued to take lessons amidst a busy performance schedule, with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and have found her teaching to be an incredibly valuable resource. The technique has helped me to understand the way I use my body in playing my instrument. This understanding has led to a relaxed and energetic way of playing which aids gradual improvements and helps to avoid repetitive or straining injuries, which are common in classical musicians. Most importantly this all leads to a more enjoyable and rewarding performance experience. I could not recommend Penny more to someone who is looking to explore the Alexander Technique.”

— Jack Schiller Principal Bassoon Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
