Getting under the hood of creativity – where the lines between inventiveness and technical proficiency are blurred – that’s where a lot of really great art is. Building skills that augment creativity will serve us our whole lives.
The common thread of successful artists in the music industry is range – demonstrating width and breadth in all aspects of the industry from practice room to the stage and from writing to royalties. Getting under the hood of creativity – where the lines between inventiveness and technical proficiency are blurred – that’s where a lot of my heroes excel. Artists such as Rick Beato, Chris Thile, Béla Fleck, Bob Clearmountain, Stevie Wonder, and Gabe Dixon serve as north-stars for our Commercial Music program.
