Sir Ken Robinson motivational speaker on music.

Every week I listen to Sonic State’s great pro-audio podcast Sonic TALK. I highly recommend it. This week they took off and in their place played a talk by Sir Ken Robinson. You really owe it to yourself to listen to this. I guarantee your going to like it a lot. He touches on divergent thinking, the singularity and why music is so important for our society and why it must be taught in schools.

As discussed in Sonic TALK 089, while I’m away we’re going to play the lecture recorded at the recent London International Music Show by Sir Ken Robinson. His main areas of focus are creativity and divergent thinking – which has a real bearing on how people use their intelligence. He’s a strong advocate of nurturing the maverick mind rather than suppressing – which is how he feels most education systems and corporate environments work. – Nick, www.sonicstate.com
