In this episode of The Creative Life Podcast Nathan shares with us some of the methods he used in learning violin and talks about creative leadership. He also talks about the preparation and management of his performance and rehearsal schedules as well as what a classical musician knows about leadership.
“A great orchestra can only function on a high level when there’s mutual respect.”
"Great work is never wasted, when you do that consistently enough, you put yourself in the position to take advantage of other opportunities that come along."
” In this business, even though we would like to think it’s all about how we practice and how we perform, but it’s still a business and not only will you go further in the business when you have more importantly a deeper relationship with people. It’s just more fun and you get different kinds of opportunities.”
