  4. "I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff."

  15. "

    If you practice all the time and master your instrument then call yourself a great instrumentalist…a great pianist, a great violinist, a great bassoonist, a great cellist, etc.

    And if you learn how to phrase musically, and understand the musical structure and grammar of music and so forth, you call yourself a musician.

    But until that person out there listening gets some kind of goose bumps one way or the other, through joy or sorrow or what have you, then don’t call yourself an artist.

    We have the power to move people and this should be the goal and not how many fast notes could we play per square inch or square measure.

    Also, never forget that we are all students for life. I am constantly learning still and no matter what you do, the learning and growing will never stop, and whether you are 8, 18 or age 88, we are students for life.
