"Learning jazz is special, because it's a music that’s based on improvisation. And the skills that you need in order to play jazz, help you to learn how to use your mind. How to develop your creativity... How to able to work together with a group of people... The more you learn about this, the better you are, the more important you will become. And you are the future that will change the world. "
