Edna Golandsky

The Transformative Power of the Taubman Approach

Edna Golandsky, founder of the Golandsky Institute and longtime student and associate of Dorothy Taubman, explains how the powerful principles of coordinate motion that define the Taubman Approach can prevent and heal fatigue, tension, and pain at the piano. Ms. Golandsky will offer brief insights into how, with further studies, the approach can cure injuries, eliminate technical and musical limitations, and lead to major transformations in pianists’ lives. The lecture will be followed by a “Problem Solving in Action” session, in which Ms. Golandsky will provide on-the-spot solutions for technically and musically challenging passages brought by participants.
