What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? It's partially inconceivable to think of not making music at this point. I started playing piano because that's what my mother did, so it was a family thing. I was playing classical music like Bach and Beethoven but also Protestant Hymns. There was a turning point though when I was 15 when I fell into pop-rock music and decided I wanted to continue this basically forever. I had friends that were into sports, but I remember wondering what they'd do with themselves at age 30 or 40. I wanted something I could continue to develop. All that said, I'm a major fan of Peter Hyatt, a statement analyst, and have often said that if I were not a mono-maniac with music, I'd go learn under him and try to pursue that. It's extremely fascinating stuff.
