My training in music and composition then led me to a kind of musical language process in which, for example, the sound of the words I play with has to expose their true meaning against their will so to speak.
Actually John, Paul Rutherford, and Trevor Watts, and several other rather well known English jazz musicians had got their training by joining the Air Force, which was a pretty standard way for people to get some kind of musical education in those days.
I don't think the Bonzo Dog could have evolved in America, nor could the old Nice: because of their musical discipline. This is one thing that British groups do have, a sort of discipline. Sometimes it can get a bit soulless, but on the whole I think it's preferable to the American alternative.
I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the theater the minute I graduated from college having not pursued it! So I went back to school and got a degree in music and began working in musical theater.
I'd love to be on a TV series someday, but I believe you get the jobs that you're meant to get. If the job that I'm meant to get is another musical or another play or film or TV show, I'm just happy to keep working.
I have a very musical family from my Scottish roots.
Carice van Houten
One of the interesting things about having little musical knowledge is that you generate surprising results sometimes; you move to places you wouldn't if you knew better.
My parents were what I like to call proper musical fans. Lots of Sondheim was played in the car.
I would do a musical, but I can't sing.
I've dreamt of being in a movie musical for a long time. For some reason I never even thought 'Les Mis' would be possible.
The most consistent musical experience I had growing up was church music.
A lot of people ask me why I don't expand and explore other musical areas, but I like the plain three- and four-chord rock-and-roll that I call the the semi-blues.
To do a musical takes a tremendous amount of energy because you have to act and sing at the same time. And everything has to be precise. Because you can't forget the lyrics because the band keeps playing, you know, and you're under a certain amount of pressure.
I totally love to act. I don't care if it's a musical, a comedy. I just like to work and interact with other people.
We really were a very musical family. Father managed to buy us a small pump organ, and I just loved this instrument.
I never thought about becoming a professional singer, but I am in touch with Bono about releasing a musical movie. It will be about an Irish band during the '70s who are looking for fortune in Las Vegas. I should play the singer of the band but I don't want to sing in front of anybody.
I wanted to be on Broadway, but in musical comedy.
I never knew I'd be in a musical, let alone win an award for one.
I have to say I have an incredible musical education because of my father.
I could hear music playing in the background of works by certain authors, like Poe and Shakespeare. And I discovered Nikki Giovanni when I was in eighth grade. Her writing has a musical energy with pulse and rhythm, almost like jazz or hip-hop.
I've always played comedy. My background is musical comedy theatre, and that's really where my training is.
I wouldn't succeed at musical theater.
Because my musical training has been limited, I've never been restricted by what technical musicians might call a song.
I never learned to verbalize an abstract musical concept. No thank you. The whole point of being a serious musician is to avoid verbalization whenever you can.
My musical taste has always been wide. I started out as a folky before I moved on to blues and soul.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
