"You have to believe in it. If you think this is exactly what you need to do …. you need to bend the world to your vision."

—David Harrington


"The best way to get noticed is to be recommended … Make your own opportunities … Building your audience is very, very important."

—Jeremy Geffen



"I played everywhere I could: Nursing houses, high schools, elementary schools, going into classrooms. I'd occasionally have a chance to play at a small concert hall, meet people, and network."

—Wu Man
