Flow Presentation at CWU

I recently put together a presentation about the inner experience of a musical practice that’s both effective and fulfilling. This is essentially what I wish someone had sat down and outlined for me 20 years ago. I dive into the topics of mastery, drive, and flow, and incorporate some entertaining images and videos (I’ve been calling this my poor man’s TED talk).

Last week, I presented at a high school jazz camp at Central Washington University. It was inspiring to hear students talk about moments that they tapped into flow— practicing, conversations, working construction, repairing instruments. The audio/video isn’t the best quality, but you should be able to see and hear everything. (I plan on producing a higher-quality version of the talk later on.) Enjoy.
