Free E-Book: Everything We Needed to Know About Business, We Learned Playing Music

Free E-book!

My book Everything We Needed to Know About Business, We Learned Playing Music is now available for viewing or download at Google Docs (.pdf file). Please spread the word to music students, educators, and music education/arts advocates.

The reality for music students is that they will either pursue music/music education as a profession (in which case they will have the need to articulate the importance of music education) or they will enter the workforce outside of music (in which case they will have to articulate to a prospective employer the benefits of music education that are universally applicable in the workplace).

This compilation of interviews with 32 CEOs and business leaders who played music as a child or adolescent is a great resource in either of those efforts.

Note: All materials available for reprint with author acknowledgment and website reference (BusinessMusician.com)
