I had had a classical education prior to that.
Maybe I'm genetically more inclined to music - but the music I make is so far removed from Indian classical music. I grew up in Texas!
I used to dance for seventeen years -classical ballet, which was very disciplined. I like yoga and Pilates, but I don't have the discipline to go to the gym.
I'd like to explode a few myths about what we call classical music. It's not high art for the titillation of a chosen few.
Classical music has become rarefied, like a maiden aunt that nobody wants to talk to.
It's wonderful doing concerts in places like New York and London, but I feel a responsibility to also bring my work home, to bring world-class, classical music to Somerset.
Parallels between classical and pop are not new. The whole San Francisco movement of John Cage and Terry Riley went hand in glove with what the Velvet Underground were doing.
We have a rock audience, classical audience, metal, pop - everything. We unite them all.
If had to label myself, I guess classical liberal would be best.
Classicism becomes avant-garde when everyone else is doing their utmost to develop new stylistic forms. I think it's healthy to return to classical forms.
At a certain point, I became a kind of musician that has tunnel vision about jazz. I only listened to jazz and classical music.
I started off with classical music, and I got into jazz when I was about 14 years old. And I've been playing jazz ever since.
I never took guitar lessons. I took classical piano lessons from the age of six when we lived in Holland. And when we moved to America, it was just the typical thing except I was really good at it; so was my brother.
I like music. Country, hip-hop, R&B, sometimes classical.
I trained as a classical guitarist but that was it.
