My name is Maaike Aarts and my passions in life are music, Alexander Technique, self-development, and learning/discovering new things. I graduated at the Alexander Technique Centre Amsterdam in December 2002 (Paul Versteeg and Tessa Marwick). I am always eager to learn more and had private lessons with Missy Vineyard and John Nicholls. I followed extra training on pregnancy and childbirth with Ilana Machover and have obviously attended all international congresses on the Alexander Technique!

I teach the Alexander Technique full time in my private practice, teach the students of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Academy and teach at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
I also give audition training, give workshops for orchestra members, teach during summer courses and I organise my own Alexander Technique retreats. Aside from this I play violin as a freelancer and in chamber music groups.

In 2021 I released the Alexander Technique App called Think Up Alexander Technique. This app helps our AT students to practise inhibition and direction during 100 daily life activities. The app is available in the App Store for iPhone and in the Google Play store for Android phones.
