"Everything is possible; anything and everything can be learned if you put your mind and heart to it. If something is challenging, that's when you know you are growing. Just like riding a bike, if it's hard, you know you are going up. Be fearless, and let your creativity guide you."
"I believe performance and playing in ensembles is completely tied with teaching. They are all practice of interactions, direction of a group, being in the moment, and creating an atmosphere for opportunities and discovering of the unknown."
