David Gorman has been developing the LearningMethods work since 1995 from a background of some 40 years of research and discovery about our human structure and function, and over 34 years of clinical practice and teaching.

Mr. Gorman has developed a rigorous program to train new LearningMethods Teachers, and there are now a growing number of licensed LearningMethods Teachers in Europe and North America, as well as many LearningMethods Apprentice-Teachers currently in various stages of training. All LearningMethods Teachers subscribe to a Code of Professional Conduct and are re-licensed and re-assessed in their skills as teachers every two years.

Interest in the work from the Performance Community

Many of the teachers or apprentice-teachers are professional performers or music/drama/movement teachers and the work has become increasingly popular in performance schools and conservatories as well as among artists and performers as a powerful way to solve performance-related problems and enhance practice and performance skills.

Here are some examples of where the LearningMethods work is being or has been taught and presented by various teachers:

The LearningMethods work is being integrated into the Theater Department at the Perpich Center for Arts Education, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA with the theater students receiving year-long courses in performance-related aspects of LearningMethods.
