These are letters received from the participants of THE SAVVY MUSICIAN Workshop. 2016
“Congratulations on yet another fantastic IRCPA event. You continue to inspire with the depth of presenter and participant that you are able to track. And I thank you for the honor of introducing Margaret Lioi. She is magnificent.
I am so sorry that I have to run out before the program ended…. I feel privileged to be able to work with you and to be in your circles. I also want to express my appreciation for your recognition of the First Nations in your opening remarks.”
Ron Davis, Jazz-Pianist, SymphRonica
“I was honoured to be a part of the event, and glad to be able to be able to help on that day.
The Savvy Musician workshop was fantastic. The author and workshop leader David Cutler was very knowledgeable, having been in our position – an independent musician in a new era of music and a changing industry. He walked us through a very important concept, the idea that you don’t have to expect to only do one thing to make your livelihood – multiple streams of income – passive and active – can and should be used to create a real life. The artist doesn’t need to be ‘struggling’ if he uses all his talents!
