Join us at Princeton University for the Golandsky Institute Summer Symposium July 9-16, 2017.


Artistic Expression. Healthy Virtuosity. Enlightenment.

At the Princeton Symposium – The Taubman Approach to Piano focuses on playing with brilliance and ease! Some practical insights:

  • A comprehensive approach to solving technical problems.
  • A foundation for full artistic expression and the development of virtuosic technical ability.
  • Experience the basic Taubman Approach principle: The “fingers, hand and arm” always operate as a synchronized unit, with each part doing what it does best.
  • Hear individual lectures critical to learning the Taubman Approach: Introduction, Rotation, In and Out, Walking Hand and Arm, and Shaping.

You’ll be amazed! Join pianists and instrumentalists of all ages from around the globe – professionals and amateurs – to experience the joy of learning and playing with newfound mastery and confidence.

The Symposium: Tuition includes four private half-hour lessons, interactive technique clinics, daily lectures, master classes, practice time, and admission to all Symposium presentations and all Festival concerts.
