Those are the words of world-renowned bassist and educator, Jeff Berlin when discussing learning musical content from a teacher versus something that should be explored and self-taught.

Through this extremely open conversation with nothing left off the table, both of our hopes is that this will be the most definitive interview of his viewpoints ever done.
