“You must be continually finding yourself, because it is always changing. It may not seem like it but that is practical advice.” – jazz guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel
(This quote was in response to an interview question asking for advice for young musicians.)
We pride ourselves in being practical, and who couldn’t use some practical advice? But what if continually finding your true self as it changes is the most practical thing to do? This quote inspires me to be practical and do just that.
For those of you who know young musicians or anyone learning something they hope to use for the rest of the life, here’s the full quote to share:
“I would say to them to just stay focused, go deep into the music, have faith and work as hard as you can! You must be continually finding yourself, because it is always changing. It may not seem like it but that is practical advice.”
