Through decades of experience, I’ve honed a process in which you will:

Cultivate your natural coordination.

We’ll integrate groundedness, alignment, and flexibility so you can fully trust your body to let go in performance.

Strengthen your mental clarity and focus.

Through using mindfulness techniques, you will maximize productivity in your practicing and develop strong, natural stage presence.

Deepen your inborn responsiveness to sound and rhythm.

By connecting with the visceral impact of musical details, each piece you practice will fully live in your body, expanding your expressive power and confidence onstage.

–Tang-mei Shieh, pianist, alum of Manhattan School of Music
