Let’s Get Physical: Technique. Edna Golandsky on Taubman Technique – Clavier Companion

The forearm is the key to everything. We need it to help the fingers and initiate movements. It’s all very small movements, small muscles, small support. The question is: what do you need to put down a key to make the act of playing and the sound really secure? It doesn’t take much weight. But if you do it right, the sound becomes fuller. Between the use of weight and the ability to time the key descent, you have the means to produce all kinds of colors and sounds. © Clavier Companion. Used with permission. All rights reserved.
