I just read and marked a check in red ink besides a quote in Clavier Companion Jan/Feb 2009, the first issue of the new combined "marriage" of "Clavier" and the "Keyboard Companion".

This is in Barbara Kreader's article "Variations: The piano magazine lives on".

".....Elvina Truman Pearce, in a January 16, 1992 Chicago Tribune interview: "Anything that's going to last forever cannot be learned overnight. The real teacher is the one who is interested in musical literacy, not in having a kid move his fingers from one place to another. I'm sure you could teach a chimpanzee to do that. There's a big difference between an educator and a manipulator." (pg. 12)

Yup, easy to miss the wood for the trees.

snobbyish, yet maybe helpful.
