Learning about life, is learning about not to give in.
It is no use saying, “We are doing our best.” You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.

Music is weightless, life isn’t.
Olhem sempre em frente, olhem o sol, não tenham medo de errar, sendo originais, iconoclastas e anti, o mais anti que puderem, e verdadeiros, fugindo aos velhos caminhos trilhados de pé posto e a todas as conjuras dos Velhos do Restelo. Cultivem a inquietação como fonte de renovamento.
— Aquilino Ribeiro

I use the theory of classical music all the time. It’s like being fluent, knowing the notes of chords, scales and about basic harmony. Bach makes the best starting point – beautiful music made within simple rules that can be easily explained to children. Once you understand that system, you can go anywhere in music.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken
