‘When I was a little kid and I was studying piano, ‘I would get music that would look too difficult, so occasionally I remember saying to my mother, ‘I don’t think I can play this piece.’ And she would say, ‘Can you play the first note?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ ‘Can you play the second note?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Well, then you can probably play the piece.’Keith Jarrett
