Certified Teacher Shari Weisz on Teaching

Teaching the Taubman Approach is extremely rewarding. I was first introduced to it in 1991, and since studying the Taubman Approach and getting it into my body, it has given me the tools and knowledge necessary to retrain adult pianists to play without pain, with new-found ease and a beautiful tone. It has also enabled me to guide young children in developing a natural technique and give them a lifelong love of music. The gift of this body of knowledge has enriched my playing and is taking me on a very gratifying journey.

“The [Taubman] movements are designed to put you in the optimum position for every note, which means that once you get past the mechanics, you have more control over the sound of every note.”
