From The Artist/Community : 

"I just sort of grew up in it, I don't really know when I started...not everything that is taught is expressively taught, you know, you learn a lot from the absorbing it, just like language." 

Music is about  expression and improvisation so that in that moment, what you're feeling, that's what your playing. "
