I think the way our parents approach our passion affects greatly the way we approach our passion.  And I think the resistance can be a really powerful tool too.  On the other hand, I think when parents can be too much hands-on, it can be stifling, because it really — it’s like I think I’ve heard this expression that, “You can’t be taught anything.  You have to learn it yourself.”  Like people can guide you in the right direction and show you options, but only the individual can learn what it is to be learned.  And in music, that statement I think is profoundly true, because it really is your partner for life. I think, even at a young age, it’s really important to develop your own relationship to the study of music, to the practice, to the ingestion of this entity that will be what you live and breathe and love and hate and cry about and laugh about for the rest of your life.  So I feel really grateful that I was kind of allowed to develop my own special relationship to the art form and then, of course, be surrounded by good, great, and not-so-great teachers also.  It’s kind of interesting.
