In 1995, Piano Wellness founder Sheila Paige began presenting workshops on the Taubman Approach for Pianists. Over the years, demand for her workshops and private lessons grew. In 2000, Ms. Paige realized her dream of organizing an annual seminar based on a multi-disciplined approach to learning and the Piano Wellness Seminar was born. In 2009 with the addition of organ faculty it became the Keyboard Wellness Seminar. The seminar encompasses the mind, the body and the spirit by combining the Taubman Approach, Alexander Technique, Bodymapping, Developmental Fitness, Meditation, Pilates, and T'ai Chi among other disciplines. Now in its 12th year the seminar is for both pianists and organists, with new organ faculty member, Bradley Hunter
Welch. Seminar sessions are designed to pertain to both pianist and organists, with special sessions just for organists.
The website, www.KeyboardWellnessSeminar.com will provide updates on Sheila Paige's teaching, performing, and lecturing schedule, as well as updates on her faculty's teaching and concerts. The Piano Wellness Seminar changed its name to Keyboard Wellness Seminar in 2008.
Ms. Paige's lectures from the 2006 Piano Wellness Seminar are available on DVD. New titles from 2007 are now for sale with many more coming soon from 2007 and 2008. Please see our DVD link.
