Music and Business together in coexistence, can there be a place for this? We place so much emphasis on the 3 "R's" we fail to see the importance of the basic learning development skills in art and music. But these are the skills and senses that we use automatically and subconsciously each day and all day long.
Visuals and colors:
Sounds and rhythm:

Our environment is filled with artistic and musical sensations that we act on and live in from the moment we wake till we turn in, yet we seldom even think that music and art intersect, compliment and strengthen our business skills.
While CEO's orchestrate a company and it's people towards innovation and profit, Music Directors and Conductors lead musicians to exceed beyond the expectations of their skill sets to maximize performances and create audience experiences. If this resonates a tone to leadership, innovation, trust(brand loyalty) and client experience, that's because there is a sharp relationship. The discipline and structure behind the mathematics of music, resolve harmony from dissonance and rhythm from syncopation. A single note which stands out as a lead tone, but a chord requires a triad of 3 notes, like a team. The sound of your chord depends on the mixture of tones you put together creating harmony, dissonance, sadness, fear and tranquility. Who is a part of your team? What are the expectations of your team?
This is why we are proud to have a roster of musicians who are also professional speakers. They educate us to see, through the sense of hearing. Through the rules of music, we can achieve greater business goals. And let's not forget how important music can be from an entertainment value prospective. Live music allows us launch innovation and celebrate our success.
Here are four featured musicians who can either speak to, and/or entertain, your audience at your next event:
