   schema:description "Drawing on thirty years of teaching and performing experience, Gordon provides a carefully-balanced exploration of the role of the piano student and teacher as well as a realistic view of the problems facing the profession today, the dynamics of a performing career, and the stages through which musicians' careers often pass. Designed to open up new avenues of inquiry, to provoke discussion and creative thinking, and to challenge and motivate students, these essays will be vital reading for all serious piano students and teachers."@en ;
