Art is not only entertainment. Art is a way of thinking. Art is a process. Art is a way of giving us imagination. I love Einstein’s quote, one of my favorite quotes ever and I tell this to my students, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” And the reason I really enjoy that is because you’re allowed to play. You need to play. How do you gain knowledge if you’re not enthusiastic? You need to cultivate your own enthusiasm. . We are creatures of emotion. And we need to realize that and embrace that. Vulnerability is a very important aspect of being an artist because the moment you feel that I’m going to overcome this fear and I’m going to risk putting myself out there, this is the music I did, I really feel deeply about it, this is the play I wrote and I really feel deeply about it, and I hope the sincerity of that comes across to some people.
