Become the performer
you dream of being.

I teach pianists how to unlock ease, confidence, and expressive freedom.

Become the performer you dream of being.

Does this sound like you?

You love music, and you’re committed to it. But you don’t feel the way you want to when you perform—or maybe even when you practice.

You might have self-doubt or performance anxiety that are preventing you from enjoying real confidence onstage.

Or you may feel tense when you play, and you just want to feel free—to let go, and to really express yourself.

Maybe, like many musicians, you even have an injury that’s put your performing on hold altogether.

Here’s the thing: Everything you need is within you. If you learn how to use your body, mind, ears, and emotional energy optimally, you can play better than you realize.

You CAN learn how to bring out all of your natural abilities. And I’ve helped hundreds of pianists do it.

If you’re ready to say YES to becoming the pianist you’re meant to be, I’d be delighted to talk to you.

If you want to discover new possibilities in your playing by breaking free of habits that are holding you back, take the first step now, and set up a complimentary consultation.

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

Cultivate your natural coordination.

We’ll combine groundedness, alignment, and flexibility to help you release habitual tension and fully trust your body to let go in performance.

Strengthen your mental and emotional powers.

Through using targeted mindfulness techniques, you’ll maximize focus, enjgagement, and 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, giving you expressive power and confidence onstage.

“Before studying with Madeline I struggled for years with debilitating performance anxiety and frustration. She enabled me to recapture my earlier love for music and performing and to raise the level of my playing to an astonishing degree.”

–Tim Mueller, pianist, alum of Eastman School of Music

“The techniques Madeline teaches are magical. I have better tone and a kind of clarity that is beyond anything I’d ever imagined. I didn’t realize that I could still make this kind of transformation and progress.”

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

The Performing Beyond Fear® Exercise audio

“While what every musician wants most deeply is to communicate without holding back, the moment of performance can be the hardest time to remember how to do that. This exercise allows me and my students to tap into something even bigger than our fear – the goodness and power of the human heart.”
