Description

Taubman Approach in Europe Piano Workshop Series

What is Taubman Approach?

Decades ago, Dorothy Taubman's genius led her to analyze what underlies virtuoso piano playing. The result of that investigation has produced a body of knowledge that can lead to an effortless and brilliant technique. It can also prevent and cure fatigue, pain and other playing-related injuries.

The Taubman Approach is a groundbreaking analysis of the mostly invisible motions that function underneath a virtuoso technique. The resulting knowledge makes it possible to help pianists overcome technical limitations as well as cure playing-related injuries. It is also the way that tone production and other components of expressive playing can be understood and taught.

Taubman principles yield excellent results for students and pianists of all levels in developing ease, facility and artistic expression at the piano. Though many people understandably associate the Taubman Approach with forearm rotation, this groundbreaking work goes far beyond that basic skill and includes a wealth of practical information that can be applied with relatively little training.
