shameless promotion (but not SELF-promotion)

shameless promotion (but not SELF-promotion) - 04/22/19 07:50 PM

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 support this particular program.

Cheers,

That seems amazing, Rich, I wish I could attend. Too busy this year; college tours, trips c family, etc. I have watched the video though and will read more about it when I have some free time, as this seems like an intelligent approach to playing effortlessly with minimal injury. Looking forward to learning more.

And for those of you who don't know him, Rich's Cunningham Piano in suburban Philadelphia is a great place to shop for a fine piano. Wide selection, knowledgeable staff. Buying my Estonia there was one of the best piano decisions I ever made. And you can probably get a Philly Cheese steak out of the deal if you're a serious shopper.😁

Oh, and Rich is a really nice guy.

It was fascinating watching the video and hearing how the Taubman approach helped her.
