The ideas and approaches explored here are based on the understanding that music can be like a native language and offer a similarly broad spectrum of creative possibilities.

Creativity Beyond Compare

Eighteen years in the making, this 208-page book articulates a new—yet old and forgotten—understanding of art and creativity. It explores how to move beyond common misunderstandings about creativity to discover one’s own genius.

This book is for anyone practicing an art or wishing to. It reveals that the nature of art has been buried under a number of misconceptions, and it encourages the reader to discover the delight of creating something profoundly personal, something unique that is “beyond compare.”
