The Golandsky Institute is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the Taubman approach to piano playing. Led by Edna Golandsky, Artistic Director, the Institute holds an annual seminar at Princeton University and hosts symposia and master classes worldwide.[1][2] The Golandsky Institute was founded in 2003 by Edna Golandsky, John Bloomfield, Robert Durso, and Mary Moran.[3][4]


The Taubman Approach is a comprehensive body of knowledge developed to train musicians in alignment and coordinate motion, which gives them the skills to play effortlessly and with a full range of artistic expression.[5]


Edna Golandsky co-founded the Taubman Institute in 1976 with Dorothy Taubman and served as Artistic Director. Later, in 2003, Ms. Golandsky founded the Golandsky Institute to carry forward the Taubman Approach.[6]
