“I find more and more that the only way a performing musician can cope with this level of stress is to have a solid technique background that he/she can depend on consistently.”

-Gilson Schachnik

Associate Professor, Berklee College of Music

“The even tone that results when the forearm, hand, and fingers are connected allows for accents and idiomatic jazz articulations but frees me from the strong finger vs. weak finger problem...The physical freedom offered by the Taubman approach is the perfect companion to the creative freedom pursued by improvising jazz pianists.”

-Don Glanden

Chairman of the Piano Department, University of the Arts

“The movements are designed to put you in the optimum position for every note...you have more control over the sound of every note.”

—Tom Lawton

Temple University
