Story of the week: "I say two things to students: 'Why are you here?' They don't have an answer. Then, 'Play a C scale two octaves up & down.' They play it. I ask, 'What does that sound like?' They have no idea. So, we've established, in less than a minute, you have no idea why you're here & have no idea what you sound like. The lesson's pretty much over. 'When you figure out one of those, come back and we can start.'" Branford Marsalis (from a recent Downbeat interview).
