Put all your soul into it, play the way you feel!

Dancers are instruments, like a piano the choreographer plays.

My piano is to me what a ship is to the sailor, what a steed is to the Arab.

Your body is merely a machine made to express the thoughts that flow through you and nothing more.

Just as the piano is not the musician, so, likewise, your body is not you.

Sometimes I can only groan, and suffer, and pour out my despair at the piano.

Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it.

I play drums, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, piano.

Well the pedal in the middle is there to separate the two other pedals.

If you want to play piano, you just gotta love piano, and I loved the way that music sounded from the beginning. Always did - everything about an instrument I loved.

When I’m creating at the piano, I tend to feel happy;

but - the eternal dilemma - how can we be happy amid the unhappiness of others? I'd do everything I could to give everyone a moment of happiness. That's what's at the heart of my music.

I always wanted to be a full-time musician.

Every television job I had was a means to buy a grand piano, or to put in a recording studio, or something like that.

The history of the music industry is inevitably also the story of the development of technology.
