Craig Cortello is a twenty-year veteran of business, most recently serving as national sales manager of a consulting firm. He is also a thirty-year veteran of the guitar, a self-taught pianist, composer, and a contributing music writer to several publications.Review:
Craig Cortello's book is a refreshing real-world take on the arguments for why music and music education matter to all of us. Craig tells a powerful story using first-hand accounts of people from all parts of the business world who share a powerful belief in music and its many proven benefits. --Scott Robertson, APR, Director of Marketing and Communications, NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants)
Craig Cortello makes an important point: making music impacts people in a way that they will probably not get anywhere else, and it affects all of them differently... It s not about giving people the opportunity to become famous musicians; it s just about giving them the tools they need to succeed in life. --Moriah Harris-Rodger, Executive Director, The Fender Music Foundation
Craig Cortello makes a strong case for music education as an important ingredient in the success of many CEOs. At a recent CEO Roundtable® retreat we explored how jazz is a very good metaphor for business today because the discipline of improvisation is required...many of the CEOs had musical backgrounds and several still play in small bands. --Loren G. Carlson, Chairman, CEO Roundtable, LLC
