Gordon's piano lessons, piano masterclasses and piano workshops take the usable ideas from traditional music college methods and mixes them together with more intuitive, contemporary, technological and fun techniques. This helps his piano students to develop a variety of diverse keyboard and piano skills for the modern world. His earliest years were spent in West Africa and as well as a strong theoretical base, he believes strongly in the traditional 'passed on' teaching styles used by African master musicians (and those in other countries with oral musical traditions). He feels that it's essential for today's up-and-coming musicians to include the kind of memory, recognitive and improvisational skills promoted by music mentors in these cultures. Having worked alongside master musicians from many styles, cultures and disciplines, he is convinced that only by combining the more intuitive aspects of music education with the western academic tradition can today's musicians be properly equipped to tackle the demands of modern music in a globalised market.
As a performer, Gordon's career has taken him around the world playing an incredibly diverse number of styles with artists such as Chaka Khan, Hugh Masekela, Russell Watson, Alexander O'Neal, Heatwave, Imagination, Kenny Thomas, Alison Limerick, Suzi Quatro etc, as well as more tech-based acts such as Imogen Heap and Psapp.

His compositional styles take in feature film work, advertising jingles, TV series for international TV and cable companies including MTV, NBC, BBC, ITV & Channel 4 etc. .
