Lecture – The Foundation of the Taubman Approach with Sondra Tammam
August 14 @ 17:15 - 18:00
We are thrilled to welcome Sondra Tammam to Chetham’s for the first time.
The lecture will be a fascinating insight into The Foundation of the Taubman Approach – Healthy Coordinated Movement for Pianists.
Sondra is Co-Director of the Dorothy Taubman Festival at Montclair State University. She was on the Taubman Institute Faculty and International Piano Festival. Dorothy Taubman’s premise was, “The body is capable of fulfilling all pianistic demands without a violation of its nature.”
A graduate of the Juilliard School, Ms. Tammam received a Master of Music Degree. She received her Bachelor of Music Degree from the Manhattan School of Music, where she was a scholarship student. Her teachers included Edwin Hughes (assistant to Leschetizky), Jeannette Haien (teacher of Murray Perahia), Dora Zaslavsky, Rosina Lhevinne, Maria Curcio (protegee of Artur Schnabel), and Dorothy Taubman.
