I\'m self-taught. When I was younger I played trombone in a marching band, and that was my first religious, or almost religious, experience with music. We were in a big gymnasium and played the William Tell overture or something, just being a bunch of 10, 11 year old kids playing this wonderful piece of music. And it was so punk, you know. The whole place was just sounding and vibrating, and I remember getting goose bumps. That\'s probably the first time I can remember me realizing what an amazing vessel for feelings music is or can be.
