By the way, here's
the good news for all musicians.
Here are some performers, teachers and other people for whom I have respect.
I've listed some of the quotes they've made that may or may not be of worth to you:
It's very difficult for me to dislike an artist. No matter what he's creating,
the fact that he's experiencing the joy of creation makes me feel like we're in a
brotherhood of some kind... we're in it together.
Critics have their purposes, and they're supposed to do what they do, but sometimes
they get a little carried away with what they think someone should have done, rather
than concerning themselves with what they did.
If you play a tune and a person don't tap their feet, don't play the tune.
Sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself.
Change is always happening. That's one of the wonderful things about jazz music.
The day of the great jazz improviser who doesn't know how to read music is over.
-It’s how you practice that counts.
-Without technical proficiency there can be no music.
-You Must Drive All Fear Out Of Your System.
-Too much analysis causes paralysis.
-A baby crawls before it walks.
Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to

You're never guaranteed about next year. People ask what you think of next season,
you have to seize the opportunities when they're in front of you.
“The key to a successful performance is finding that fine line
between intensity and relaxation.”
