Kenny Werner – “Becoming The Instrument”

Kenny Werner has been a world-class pianist and composer for over forty years. His prolific output of compositions, recordings and publications continue to impact audiences around the world. In 1996 he wrote his landmark book, Effortless Mastery, Liberating The Master Musician Within. Werner has since created videos, lectured world-wide and authored many articles on how musicians, artists or even business people can allow their “master creator” within to lift their performance to it’s highest level, showing us how to be spontaneous, fearless, joyful and disciplined in our work and in our life. Kenny was recently awarded the 2010 Guggenheim Fellowship Award for his seminal work, No Beginning No End. No Beginning No End is a musical journey exploring tragedy and loss, death and transition, and the path from one lifetime to the next.

The lessons Kenny has derived from traveling the path towards music mastery apply and can enrich anyone who seeks joy and mastery in any aspect of their lives, whether it be their hobby, their career, or simply the way they treat others and themselves.  He conveys this message in two ways: Through words and music. Kenny’s solo piano playing will convey the fruits of this path and stir the souls of those present. He creates fertile soil through his playing with which to plant the ideas he is about to express in the lecture.  Kenny likes to say, “When the soul of the performer starts to vibrate, and he receives his inspiration from that vibration, the souls of the audience start to vibrate and that is the experience behind the music that we all crave.”
