Product Overview

Anna Goldsworthy was nine years old when she met Eleanora Sivan, the charismatic Russian ?migr? and world-class pianist who became her piano teacher.Piano Lessons is the story of what Mrs. Sivan brought to Anna?s lessons: a love of music, a respect for life, a generous spirit, and the courage to embrace a musical life.
Beautifully written and strikingly honest, Piano Lessons takes the reader on a journey into the heart and meaning of music. As Anna discovers passion and ambition, confronts doubt and disappointment, and learns about much more than tone and technique, Mrs. Sivan?s wisdom guides her:
"We are not teaching piano playing. We are teaching philosophy and life and music digested.? ?What is intuition? Knowledge that has come inside.?
?My darling, we must sit and work.?
Piano Lessons reminds us all how an extraordinary teacher can change a life completely. A work that will appeal to all music lovers and anyone who has ever taken a music lesson,Piano Lessons will also touch the heart of anyone who has ever loved a teacher.
