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. 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.

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.

Who are the people who have meant the most to you in your musical education? He has amazing ears for color and sound — an extraordinary sensitivity to musical poetry and nuance. He got me to listen like I had never listened before, and he also taught me how to touch the piano keys; he transmitted that by his example.

An Interview with Madeline Bruser

Recently I was talking with two friends of mine—one of them four years old and the other aged six. The subject was music lessons: specifically, the question of why a person should have to endure them. I tried out all the usual explanations that have been put out by the piano teaching industry.
