Entrepreneur and Musician David Cutler To Visit MSU on February 27

The author of "The Savvy Musician" will share his wisdom and experience with MSU and mid-Michigan musicians.

David Cutler, composer, educator, pianist, and author of "The Savvy Musician," will present a series of three lectures at the MSU College of Music on Monday, February 27. The talks are free and open to the public.

"The Compositions of David Cutler"
12:40‐2:20 p.m., Hart Recital Hall, Music Building

"How Music Education Can Change the World (and Why It Often Doesn't)"
3:00‐3:50 p.m., 206 Music Building
This presentation shows uncommon ways to increase impact and advocacy, making music education more essential, valued, and supported.

"Creating Demand for Your Music in Any Environment"
6:00‐7:30 p.m., Music Building Auditorium
In order to thrive as a musician, there must be demand for what is offered. This compelling presentation demonstrates what it takes to establish a brand and career when there is a lot of demand, within a competitive field, and in environments where no demand currently exists. This session will explore new opportunities for twenty-first century musicians.

David Cutler studied at the University of Miami, Hochschule für Musik (Vienna), the Eastman School of Music, and Indiana University. He currently teaches at Duquesne University, where he also serves as the director of music entrepreneurship.
