Philadelphian Finds Lucrative Career in Teaching and Performing

When I was 8 years old my hand shot up in class when the question was asked: “Who wants to take piano lessons”?  I’ve had a never-fading love affair with music ever since. Years later I was injured by playing the piano and it seemed that I might never feel whole again.  The bad habits which were part of the way I learned to play caused severe tendonitis and its accompanying pain.

“Classical and jazz pianists play the same instrument and are governed by the same physiological principles. The physical freedom offered by the Taubman approach is the perfect companion to the creative freedom pursued by improvising jazz pianists.”
