I would love it if all the students could have a shift in mindset. I don’t know why this is…I don’t know where it came from, but there is something with the arts that people believe that if you didn’t come out of the womb singing and sounding good, or if you’re not innately a songwriter that it’s just not meant to be. That’s untrue, all of those things are teachable skills.

Memorable Show Quotes
Sometimes creativity takes the form of taking a germinal idea that came from somewhere else, not out of yourself, and doing improvements or modifications or extensions to it.
Don’t give up just because your number hasn’t been called yet. If you’re staying authentic and you have something to say…there’s still an opportunity.
