I think music is important for all kids; they learn a great sense of discipline, they learn to work with other people. And I think that also when we learn these rules, you learn to be creative in breaking those rules to make something really special. And I see that in the medical profession, the USC for instance, a lot of the music students have been recruited to become doctors. Because the thougt is, if they learn to follow these strict guidelines and they create a great classical work or a great jazz work, then they can come up with a cure for something as well because we have a lot of rules for medicine and we have to find a way to break those rules in medicine to cure things like cancer.
