My teaching combines five essential elements. You learn how to Eliminate excess physical effort Use your body efficiently to maximize both power and sensitivity. Release mental tension Use mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and increase focus so you can accomplish more in practice sessions. Deepen your responsiveness to sound Use awareness techniques to strengthen your visceral connection to sound, so you can be fully present in your performances.

Create rhythmic vitality Organize notes according to fundamental principles of pulse and timing to create a strong sense of organic momentum. Connect to your heart Strengthen awareness of your deepest motivation to perform: this will bring you true confidence and self-trust onstage. Eliminate excess physical effort Use your body efficiently to maximize both power and sensitivity. Then I work with them on a set of proven techniques to break free of these limitations so they can perform with more confidence and expressive power.

How did I develop this approach? I started out on track for a concert career, and in my 20s I performed as soloist with the San Francisco and Denver Symphony Orchestras.

But at 29 I had a crisis of confidence. I was getting close to the age limits for the big piano competitions, and I desperately wanted to take my career to the next level.

Many people suggested that I play a New York debut recital. So I auditioned for a grant to fund the debut… and it was a disaster. When I started playing my hands felt out of control, and I made some bizarre mistakes. I wanted to disappear. This painful experience made one thing obvious: If I was going to advance in my career, I needed a whole new kind of relaxation and confidence onstage.

But now, after this devastating audition experience, I had a vague memory that meditation had calmed me down, and I started thinking that it might bring me the kind of relaxation and confidence I wanted as a performer.

Did it ever. Meditation helped me relax and focus, and that led me to discover a completely new approach to practice and performance. My playing and teaching radically improved so that my whole musical life became much more enjoyable and fulfilling. There are many teachers out there who can teach you the craft, but Madeline succeeds in making you grow as an artist and a human being.
