MUSIC EDUCATION vs. Imitation of the Teacher
. . . there is a vast difference between a Music Education and the ability to move the fingers over the keyboard to produce a succession of sounds. In one case, there is initiative and musical understanding—the other is mechanical mimicry of the teacher.
A Music Education for a piano student consists of two things:
(1) A mind trained to understand the fundamentals and construction of music, and the principles which underlie piano playing.
(2) Hands trained to execute the will of the educated mind.
Equipped with a true Music Education, the student is materially assisted in his own playing—[s]he can draw on his [her] store of accumulated knowledge and make independent progress—[s]he can understand and appreciate the artistry of others.
Lacking in Music Education, the student can only mimic the teacher—there is no musical inspiration—[s]he has no foundation of music knowledge upon which [s]he can build and progress.
