“A master teacher of the Alexander Technique, Meade Andrews is professional, com- passionate, knowledgeable about the body, and explains the work in a simple, yet poetic manner. My lessons with Meade have helped me become kinesthetically aware, and have taught me how to recognize my mental and physical habits. Meade is patient, and intuitively knows what a student needs at any given time. She has taught master classes for my voice students, and I have seen her free a voice in a matter of minutes!”
– Susan Dorchin, Voice Teacher, Music Department, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton

Meade has traveled extensively throughout the US and abroad (Japan, Germany, Australia, Spain), introducing the Alexander Technique to groups of students, teachers, and professionals in the performing arts. Simultaneously she has maintained a private teaching practice in the Alexander Technique.

In 2020 she co-authored with Jana Tift Your Body Knows: A Movement Guide for Actors.
“Meade Andrews has been my teacher for many years. Our work together in the Alexander Technique grew into an educational partnership, and an exploration of the physical aspects of the moving human body – mostly mine. Meade has a wonderful understanding of movement and the dynamic interactions of muscle and bone that allow motion. She patiently works to unravel the ravages caused, in me, by many years of lab work, writing at computer, raising a family, and playing golf. She has a wonderful way of identifying a place in the body that when released allows the rest of the body to recover. I have worked with many excellent Alexander teachers over the years. Meade is outstanding amongst her peers. I highly recommend her.”
