Pianist-Whisperer Dorothy Taubman, 95
"Musicians, often called elite athletes of the small muscles, suffer repetitive strain injuries from long hours of practice and hectic performing schedules. Like athletes, they turn to physical therapy, ice packs, massage, acupuncture, surgery and cortisone injections for relief. Ms. Taubman thought that such problems could be avoided with a more ergonomic approach, and that such an approach could lead not just to pain-free playing but also to greater artistic results."
