Dustin Hoffman, Jazz Musician?

Dustin Hoffman

Oscar-winning actor Dustin Hoffman would like to become a respected jazz musician. According to an article published in several news outlets, the 71-year-old star told Flaunt Magazine, “I promised myself that before I kick the bucket I’d become a decent jazz player.”

Unfortunately, Hoffman does not play an instrument, but he’s working on that deficiency now by taking piano lessons. “The guy I’m practicing with says he’ll have me playing in a year,” Hoffman was quoted as saying. “If God tapped me on the shoulder and offered me an ultimatum, acting or jazz piano, I’d make the decision in a New York minute!”
