The Golandsky Institute's Summer Symposium and Piano Institute Runs July 9th to 17th in Princeton

If you're interested in learning about the Taubman Approach to piano technique, here's the place to do it this summer: the Golandsky Institute will be offering their 8th Annual Summer Symposium and International Piano Festival at Princeton University from July 9th to 17th. About the Taubman Approach:
Decades ago, Dorothy Taubman's genius led her to analyze what underlies virtuoso piano playing. The result of that investigation has produced a body of knowledge that can lead to an effortless and brilliant technique. It can also prevent and cure fatigue, pain and other playing-related injuries.

The Taubman Approach is a groundbreaking analysis of the mostly invisible motions that function underneath a virtuoso technique. The resulting knowledge makes it possible to help pianists overcome technical limitations as well as cure playing-related injuries. It is also the way that tone production and other components of expressive playing can be understood and taught.
Both programs have assembled a huge list of piano luminaries. The Summer Symposium will be featuring workshops by Edna Golandsky, John Bloomfield, Robert Durso, Mary Moran, Scott Burnham, Steve Mackey, Orli Shaham, Lisa Yui, Logan Skelton, Sophie Till, Mark Love, and Elena Sorokina. The Piano Festival will feature performances by Pavel Nersessian, Ilya Itin, Father Sean Duggan, Logan Skelton, Bill Charlap, and Yehudi Wyner.

Sounds like a great lineup and definitely not to be missed if you're in the central New Jersey area. You can even register online.

(Thanks, Karen!)
