Hello All,

Many already know that I studied music at the college level before entering the piano industry. You might not know that I was exposed to the Dorothy Taubman Approach well before it was as well publicized as it is today.

My alma mater (Temple University in Philadelphia) is offering a one week seminar on the Taubman Approach with a variety of professors and teachers from around the US. If you have always wondered about Dorothy Taubman and what it is all about, this could be a terrific way to get exposure to something that may be different from your present piano experience. This approach is especially good for any pianist who may experience discomfort or pain while playing.

Here is a link: http://taubmanseminar.com/

And just for fun, a video on what it has done for one pianist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5SfUas9mz0

I have no direct affiliation with this program or the Taubman Approach in general, but I do donate to help this program happen.

Taubman's approach fascinates me, as it seems to modernize and to expand all the Tobias Matthay approach that my teachers gravitated toward.

(Taubman regarded Matthay a "genius." Unfortunately, his explanations of technique in his books are rather difficult to understand.)
