I began studying the Taubman Approach in 1987 due to the terrible tension and pain I had in my hands and arms. I studied the approach on and off during the 90s, including three years with Edna Golandsky. In the following years, Edna has made many discoveries that would directly benefit my particular problems and me. This year I studied with John Bloomfield, a Golandsky Institute faculty member, and we made great progress. Although I live in Singapore, I attended the Golandsky Institute Summer Piano Festival at Princeton University. Edna has a terrific staff of teachers who are adept at presenting very difficult material in a very accessible manner. At Princeton, I could sense the teachers’ genuine and deep concern. For me the best impression was that the material is now so straightforward and easy to understand. It was presented as simply the most efficient and sane way to move to the piano. This is a huge step forward for the integration of the work into mainstream teaching.
