Create genuine sounds and meaningful things to connect and empower the world in the raddest way.
1. Be genuine in helping others.
Be genuine in your interactions. Find common ground and create alliances. When you build real relationships, helping others becomes second nature.
2. Listen to people and the music they make.
The easiest way to find common ground is to truly listen. Whatever sound is being produced, hear it. Stay in the moment and focus on what is being said through words or notes.
3. Create a space where people feel comfortable getting a little uncomfortable.
Growing as a musician and as a person is not easy. Mold an environment around you that is one of encouragement and accepting of mistakes, easing people out of their comfort zones and into a place of self-discovery.
4. Educate people adequately so they can go into the world with confidence.
Start with fundamentals and build lesson plans off of a solid foundation. Keep a map of lessons learned and milestones achieved and make students aware of their successes. Acknowledge those accomplishments with the students so they feel inclined to play with and in front of other people.
5. Be passionate and inspire others to share their gifts.
Ideas turned into actions change the world. Be a contagious positive force for change.
