Arts entrepreneur to speak at Stetson

Dr. David Cutler, director of Music Entrepreneurship at the University of South Carolina and author of The Savvy Musician: Building a Career, Earning a Living, & Making a Difference (http://www.savvymusician.com/) will appear at Stetson University, Thursday, Nov. 14. The one day residency is presented by Stetson’s School of Music. The events are free and open to the public.

Cutler will facilitate two discussions with students and faculty. Among his topics:

  • The Outward Artist – This re-examines the motivation of musicians and illuminates a powerful, uncommon strategy for increasing meaning and success in careers. — 9-9:50 a.m.; Location: 112 Presser Hall
  • Stop Thinking Like a Musician!  – We live in an era where music schools are pumping record numbers of EXTRA outstanding performers and composers into an over-saturated workforce.  What factors best determine who succeeds and who doesn’t? This provocative but optimistic presentation pokes holes in common myths, unleashing a new world of potential for musicians brave enough to stop thinking like one. — 4-5 p.m.; Location:  204 Presser Hall

One of the world’s leading voices on arts leadership, career, and entrepreneurship training, Cutler has offered ground-breaking interactive workshops for organizations such as the Juilliard School, Dutch Classical Music Meeting, New World Symphony Orchestra, Indiana University and Italy’s soundSCAPE music festival. He balances a varied career as a jazz and classical composer, pianist, educator, arranger, conductor, collaborator, concert producer, author, blogger, consultant, speaker, advocate and entrepreneur. Cutler studied at the University of Miami (BM), Hochschule für Musik in Vienna, Austria, Eastman School of Music (MM), and Indiana University (DM).
