On the subject of creativity inspiration techniques, Benjamin Zander is one of the most sought after speakers in the world. Let's watch this talk from the TED Conference:
Benjamin Zander has been the conductor of The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra for the past thirty years. He has been on the faculty of the New England Conservatory since 1965 and has taken the NEC Youth Philharmonic on thirteen international tours. He is also the Artistic Director of the Walnut Hill School, a high school for the performing arts.
He was the 2002 recipient of the United Nations Caring Citizen of the Humanities Award.
Mr. Zander has two infectious passions: classical music, and helping us all realize our untapped love for it -- and by extension, our untapped love for all new possibilities, new experiences, new connections.
Whether you are an educator, advocate, or parent concerned about the future of your child's music education, or any other education for that matter, I urge you to watch this video and see what bright possibilities there really are, if we can take the necessary steps to bring this future to fruition.
A leader is not just "a creative person". He is also a person who has the ability to inspire creativity in OTHERS. I certainly hope that you were inspired by the above video.

FROM A VIOLINIST:
"The Cowling system is a set of 12 exercises designed to increase the flexibility and strength of the hand, wrist, and fingers.
"I bought the course in 1978 and have found them to be invaluable.
"I've kept them all these years and still use them to warm up with before playing."
~ Richard Barton

FROM A BASS PLAYER:
"My fingers actually DO what my brain tells them to do, WITHOUT getting confused."
~ Anthony Jerome Smith,
35-year veteran bass player.
FROM A PIANIST:
"In 1976, my teacher gave me his copy of all the exercises, whereupon I made xeroxed pages to put in a binder.
"My teacher was amazed at my progress that in a year I could play, for example, the prelude #17 of Chopin!
(from a pianists' discussion board in England, 2006)
FROM A GUITARIST:
"I was introduced to the Cowling System in the 1980's by a violinist in his seventies, who had amazing dexterity on his instrument for HIS age.
"Through the use of the COWLING SYSTEM, I went from "amateur" to an "A" level in music in a very short number of years.
"I have been using the exercises continuously since my friend gave them to me and believe me - THEY WORK."
~ Don Wills
Guitarist, Great Britain
FROM A VIOLINIST:
"I must say I am highly delighted with the way my fingering has improved since I commenced your hand strengthening exercises.
"Recently, I became very depressed about my playing and almost decided to give it up, but now I feel it's a pleasure, thanks to the Cowling System."
~ "THE VIOLINIST" Magazine, December, 1924
