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 players to develop a variety of next-level keyboard and piano skills for the modern world. As well as a strong theoretical base, he believes strongly in the traditional 'passed on' teaching styles used in his birthplace of Nigeria (and other countries with oral musical traditions). He feels that it's crucial for today's up-and-coming musician 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 stresses 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 cutting-edge acts such as Imogen Heap and Psapp.
