Students say

"Sharon Oliensis is a masterful and sensitive practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method. I have experienced excellent results working with her, and I'm eager to recommend her to all who wish to improve health and feel more comfortable in body and spirit. Over the years Sharon has significantly improved my pain from scoliosis and injuries. Moreover I have experienced great benefit as a singer. I am more grounded, and the work has promoted greater open-throated ease in breathing. The Method produces natural energy and a feeling of well-being, and I have the warmest praise for Sharon."

"Before studying with Teresa Dybvig, I had studied with several prominent teachers of the Taubman Technique for nine years. Although I made some progress, it was not until I started studying with Terry that my technique finally came together... Terry helped me regain my proper posture and hand shape... Terry not only was able to balance my body; her focus is always on musical expression. She has a unique gift of balancing the teaching of technical skills with the expression of music. I am finally beginning to be where I want to be in my piano playing. I am convinced that this is due to Terry's high quality teaching."

"Studying the Taubman Approach with Susan Nowicki has helped me learn to play the piano with more efficiency and freedom. This not only helped me overcome my tendonitis, but has increased my technical ability as a pianist. I feel that what I learned will make me a much better musician and teacher."
