When the student is ready,
the teacher will appear.
– Zen proverb
Zen and the Art of Piano is dedicated to my first piano teachers: Patricia Reeve and Robin McCabe.
Many teachers try to shape you into their image; each of these extraordinary mentors guided me toward an understanding of myself, to a musical language that only I could speak.
I owe everything to my teacher
because he never taught me a thing nor explained anything to me.
– Zen Master
