Making People Happy

I had a lovely meeting yesterday with a couple that is getting married at the end of the month. It was a nice way to end the day, getting to talk with a couple of people who are so looking forward to the celebration of their love.

It’s easy to get distracted by the business side of what we do every day. It is such a nice dose of sunlight to be reminded that we are in the business of making people happy. Music is there when people are at their highest and their lowest. Every meaningful event in our lives has a soundtrack, and how lucky are we to be invited to provide that soundtrack for so many people.

Don’t get distracted by the business side of what we do. It’s easy to get caught up in the particulars of putting on the show. Obviously there are many things that need to fall into place every night, but remind yourself to take a moment every once in a while and reflect on the magic of the service we are providing people. At every show we are making memories more memorable. We are making special times more special. We make people happy. For a living. And that’s pretty great.

Song of Power – Power of Song

Song can add power to words. Music creates a magic beyond that which words alone can achieve. It is not simple, though – only the perfect combination of rhythm, melody, and harmony can set fire to the emotions smoldering beneath the words.

Every Day – Inspiration

Find inspiration every day.

  • Read a chapter – Right now I’m reading “A Romance on Three Legs: Glenn Gould’s Obsessive Quest for the Perfect Piano” by Katie Hafner.
  • Quietly sit – Go to a park and absorb some nature. Go to a coffee shop and absorb some commotion. Feed your senses.
  • Listen to a “brand new music” playlist – All of the streaming music services have a collection of cutting edge releases. Check them out!

Light a spark. Set your creativity ablaze!
