In search of technical logic and freedom after years of misguided piano training leading to injury, Dorothy Taubman’s answers saved me from becoming a statistic. Taubman’s insights allowed me to identify movements which were, remarkably, invisible to the eye and yet extremely painful. Thankfully the story did not end after just a few fortunate lessons. Were it not for the continuing reinforcement of this knowledge and technique through lessons with Edna Golandsky and the Golandsky Institute Professional Training Program, the potential in my playing and teaching would never have been realized. It is a marvel that Taubman discovered not only virtuoso playing and cures for innumerable problems, but also interpretive insights about the music, its form, and its deep meanings and possibilities.
