“Eventually we all have to accept full and total responsibility for our actions, everything we have done, and have not done. ”
― Hubert Selby Jr., Requiem for a Dream
More important than taking credit for successes, is taking responsibility for failures, and learning from them.
In music, it is one’s own responsibility to take the tools given, listen to the lessons/masterclasses/courses, and work hard in order to have success. The lessons may be taught, and the advice given, but it is the individual’s responsibility to implement this knowledge to better him/herself and those around them.
It is our responsibility as musicians to create, perform, and teach great music for those who are not as fortunate as us.
