If someone wants to play music you do not have to get a ruler or whips to make them practice.–Thelonious Monk.
They would tell me to practice, and they would get on my case, but only because they knew that’s what I wanted to do. They never really did pressure me. They wouldn’t have made me take lessons if my heart wasn’t in it. I was 3 or 4 years old, and I wanted it.–Taylor Eigsti
