“[One thing] that I wanted to say was that I certainly don’t expect all of my students to go on to become professional musicians. Certainly, that’s a fine goal and some students do go in that direction, but just studying an instrument or music in general at the Center is such a valuable thing to do, I think. For engineers, for poets, for anything you could possibly want to do, it just adds so much breadth and value to your life. That’s a great thing to do and there’s certainly no requirement that anyone has that as their goal or sole focus.”
