Rating: ****

In his book, Everything We Needed to Know About Business We Learned Playing Music, author and musician Craig Cortello interviewed 32 highly successful business men and women who credit music education for helping them achieve success.

‘There are three principles in music that absolutely, positively, overlap in business. One is the concept of teamwork. The second is creativity within that team and trust that’s developed. And the third is spontaneity.’ Andrew Mackenzie, CEO of Yamamoto, Moss, Mackenzie is quoted as saying on page 158.

“For Andrew, the obvious benefit of music education that correlates to the corporate sector is the capacity for original thought.”

When deciding where to spend money to educate our children, more and more schools are deciding that music, art, and creative writing classes are expendable. Technology, science and engineering are the focus. If we want our young people to be able to compete in the global marketplace of the future we must recognize that they need both. Buy the Book, then pick up that old guitar of yours and teach your son or daughter to play. You and your kids will be glad you did.
