The breadth and depth of change we’re experiencing is happening at breakneck speed and, more so than ever before, we need to think very differently about our lives, our future, our opportunities, and how we intend to manage new levels of complexity that we’ve never before witnessed.

I’m of the view that, regardless of whatever else emerges, the one critical, personal attribute that will dominate the future, is creativity.

As we understand more about music, in particular, creative music education, we’re beginning to understand the extent to which creative musicianship impacts the development of our brains. Creative approaches to music education contribute to the growth of the brain, directly increasing connectivity. And, at a neurological level, increased connectivity translates directly to increased creative capability.

In my upcoming book, Music on Mars, we explore how naturally and profoundly musical all human beings are. We explore more about how technology is reshaping our future, and how creative capability has never been so important. We also explore how a unique approach to music education can provide critical neurological nutrition that directly impacts our creative capability.

Clearly, we value music education. But why is it that so many students struggle with music lessons and give up long before they ever learned how to really play? The failure rate of music lessons is breathtaking, and we’ve come to believe certain “facts” that are actually completely false. 

This book is an educational supplement for both teachers and students. It presents critical insights that shed new light on our understanding of what it takes to ‘stick with it’ and flourish in music lessons. In fact, these insights are central to sticking at anything—a marriage, vocation or career—any long-term relationship at all. This is because all long term-relationships share a set of ‘six simple components’. Knowing these six components, and understanding the role they play, is critical if you want your children—or yourself—to succeed in the long term—at music or anything else. 

The intention of ‘Music and The Art of Long-Term Relationships’ is to provide a simple, but powerful contribution to anyone interested in knowing more about what it takes to successfully navigate a long-term relationship with learning music.
