“The important part of creativity is to just realize that you can make something great out of anything.”
Marco Benevento delves into the subject of creativity through music in this Speakeasy talk from Wanderlust Stratton 2014. As an accomplished pianist and composer, Marco has over a decade of experience performing for and inspiring his listeners. Through music, he illustrates how creativity is often stifled by the fear of inadequacy. Even when inspiration is slow to strike, Marco stresses the importance of surrendering to our surroundings. By shelving self-doubt and embracing flexibility in our lives, bodies, and minds, we can transform uncertainty into something useful. Nothing is gained from hiding in the shadows. Demonstrating how a single note can inspire a tune, and how one thought can spark action, Marco reveals how even the most simple of melodies can be transformed into something wonderful worth sharing.
“Everyone can play music, no one should be discouraged.”
