“Timani is an extremely good investment in achieving an effortless and pain-free way of playing.”
Solo viola, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra
“Timani can not just solve physical problems, but it can also help you to really get out your musical expression; so that it flows through you, just as you dreamt of in the time you chose to become a musician.”
Co-principal 2nd violin in the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra
“Timani offers a great revelation of how to use the body in the most efficient way for musicians. It is both very theoretical and anatomical, and very practical in a natural and personal way.”
Solo flute, Iceland Symphony Orchestra
“Timani will give you amazing possibilities for development as a
musician and as a human being!”
“If you are a teacher it is not within your integrity to ignore this course once you have heard of it. You will learn the latest cutting edge understandings and knowledge about the body explained and applied to music making for instant progress.”

Frequently Asked Questions
These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:
How does the membership work?
You’ll have instant access to a membership area with lots of musician related anatomy, exercises and tips for enhancing your personal practice and the first 30 days is free!
Who is it for?
It is for every professional musician, amateur musician, music teacher or music student of every instrument/singing, and for all genres.
It is for anyone that has experienced challenges with the physical part of playing through pain or effort and it is also for you who have never had problems but still want to increase your knowledge and skill of playing and singing.
It is for you if you truly want to explore your human potential. It is for those that are open minded, who want the best for themselves and others, and who is keen to understand how to create a better life as a musician.
Why did we create this online opportunity?
We wanted to make it available, across the world, to as many musicians as possible. We also made it as affordable as a meal out. And even though the information is great to help a healthy music career, we wanted to make it possible for everyone to join!
Will the focus on anatomy distract or diminish my natural feeling of playing?
Far from it.
You may find that it brings you even more range for your talent to expand and develop even further. However, there might be an initial practice time before your new skills are integrated and feel completely natural. But with the concrete knowledge and exercises you will have a great foundation for your explorations while practising.
What if I find out it’s not for me once I’ve joined?
We offer a full 30-day free trial, where you get to take a look around and see if it's for you.
You can cancel at any time.
After the first 30 days you'll be charged the monthly members fee.
Will I be a teacher of Timani by joining this membership?
No, you will not be a certified teacher of Timani. You’re welcome to share your ah-ha’s with others, but you will not have received the amount of knowledge or experience it takes to become a teacher and help others sufficiently. If you want to find out more about the next English or Norwegian teacher training you can go HERE for the Norwegian courses and HERE for the English Courses.
At that time, I was convinced that if I would just practice 6-8 hours every day, I would magically get the career and recognition that the pianist I felt that I had inside of me deserved. I also had many concepts about what was success and what was failure in terms of how my career should look. And I also had a total conviction that my piano playing had nothing to do with my body. The music was all that mattered to me. And the funny thing is…it still is!
But now I have realised that it is the body that is creating the music, and transmitting EVERYTHING that happens at the emotional and musical level. That the body is in fact our first instrument, regardless of the outer piece of wood or metal. I completely love nerding around with different instruments also, but down to the basics of it, the fact is that when you are playing the instrument you have in your hands, and the body needs to do the work.
From my own personal experience as a pianist, and through coaching thousands of musicians, I know and understand the common peaks and pitfalls of being a musician. The immense desire to express through sound, the moments of peak performance that drive us to keep going, the trying to regain or reach the feeling of natural technique, occasional or chronic pain and discomfort, the lack of musician-related anatomical understanding, the wish to relax and feel free but not really knowing how, the sense of musical ability inside that doesn’t effortlessly flow through, and maybe on top of all this, nerves and anxiety, a sense of struggle, frustration and the feeling of not being recognised and good enough. It may sound bad… but we cannot hide the facts anymore. Even recent studies show us how orchestra musicians have a higher degree of commitment to the workplace than the general workforce, and at the same time peak the stats of anxiety and depression. We are willing to give up our happiness and health to create music.
