Ornette Coleman had three rules about playing music:

1.  Learn how to play music on the instrument which you choose to play

2.  Eliminate the problems of having a style that gets in the way of playing what you think or feel

3.  Don’t get so hung up in the technique of your instrument that you can’t play music anymore.
