Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician. Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works. It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music.
music2work2 grew out of the years where I was juggling both music and corporate careers. I would listen to my morning practice sessions while working on strategy documents and lose myself in my work.
I'd attain the place that Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi describes as a state of flow far faster than if I listened to other artists.
I think music is good for you, and instrumental piano driven music is pretty good stuff to have on when you're working with your mind.
