WHY MUSIC?

  • By some estimates, an audience retains only 20% of a speech 1 hour later, and 2-3% within 30 days

  • Most of us can remember the lyrics to our favorite 20-30 songs, but can't recall the 3 items we need from the grocery store

  • How would you like your employees or members to remember your message with the specificity that you remember TV and radio jingles?

At La Dolce Vita Enterprises, we believe that creative ("right-brain") and analytical ("left-brain") abilities are complimentary and can provide powerful synergies in all of life's pursuits.  We're living in a new renaissance period, one in which adaptability, creative thought, and intellectual agility will be the defining characteristics of leading organizations and their people.

Craig draws the parallels between the lessons of music, music education, and creativity and his success in the corporate world.
