When Rotation Meets In and Out

What is it like to play without twisting or curling fingers? In the FREE video below, Edna Golandsky discusses the way that rotation and in and out movements become integrated in a scale, preventing uncomfortable and sometimes painful finger positions. You need a union between both rotation and in and out movements to play without strain—just as you need a strong foundation to build a house.

Many pianists wrongly give the job of playing the piano to the fingers alone. However, just as someone's back might "go out" because of hard labor, the fingers can do the same.

Watch this video to set you on a healthy path to playing correctly. This video covers the following topics:

  • Scales
  • Rotation
  • In and out
  • Integrating movements

To learn more about rotation and in and out movements as seen in this FREE VIDEO below, attend our one-week Summer Symposium and International Piano Festival at Princeton University, July 9-17, 2016. This rare opportunity allows pianists to examine the body of work known as the Taubman Approach, presented by expert faculty who have studied directly with Mrs. Taubman and Edna Golandsky.
