The Taubman Approach uses the biomechanics of the fingers, hand, wrist, and forearm to create ease, virtuosity, and musical control at the piano. Fingers need the support of the arm when playing, and they function most freely when they do not stretch away from each other. Therefore, rotational movements of the forearm transfer weight quickly and easily from finger to finger, ensuring that every finger has arm (power) behind it, and ensuring that every note is individually controlled, for satisfying musical results.

I began studying the Taubman Approach to address limitations I had always had in playing, and that none of my teachers, even at a university and graduate level, were able to help me overcome. I discovered the Taubman Approach accidentally, and since experiencing its benefits, I have stopped at nothing to gain the skills to help anyone, at any level of playing-beginner to expert. I do not want anyone to experience the soul-crushing effects of being boxed in by limits in music making. 

I study with Mary Moran at the Golandsky Institute. She is an expert on teaching technique to children (as well as adults), and I use her curriculum with my students.
