**The Dilemma:**
As the modern world continues to evolve, we'll need new leaders who will provide unique and modern solutions.

Shaun's "Da Vinci Approach" ignites the creative spark in his audience. His method is a transformative experience that develops creative habits, enhances problem-solving skills, and reignites innovation. 


You don’t have to be a star to shine. Your creative fire is bright enough to light a darkening sky, so go fill the night with your own constellations. 

Five Steps to Relight the Creative Fire

Time and again, the five-step method I've dubbed the "Da Vinci Approach" has proven to be my secret weapon. More than just a strategy, it's a transformative experience that enhances problem-solving skills, reignites innovation, and rekindles our capacity to dream. This approach has not only led to monumental achievements in my career but has also profoundly enriched my personal life. It has been the source of my most unique and exceptional ideas, helping me achieve the impossible through innovation.  

Almost is Enough

It's easy to think that only the most polished performances should be staged, only the most flawless events should be held, and only the most complete works of art should be published. But art doesn't work that way, and neither should anything else. Creativity is never perfect, and neither are we. If we wait for perfection, we'll be waiting forever. Embracing the "Almost" frees us from the fear of failure and the shackles of unrealistic expectations. Shoot for the moon, and be content with wherever you land. I learned this valuable lesson at a concert in Dallas, from a young trumpet player named Jordan. 

What a Difference 20 Minutes Makes

Everyone needs to find their creative outlet and cultivate it daily. Whether it's journaling, composing, painting, baking, gardening, or whatever, we need it, and we need to spend at least 20 minutes every day nurturing it. Fostering a creative outlet and dedicating time to nurture it can significantly enhance your life in numerous ways. Here are several reasons why everyone should consider engaging in creative activities for at least 20 minutes a day:

"...Shaun was engaging from start to finish! He quickly captured our students' interest with his musical talent and held their engagement throughout with his story of perseverance and resilience. I must have asked 100 plus students after the event how they liked it and it was overwhelmingly positive!"
Steven Fisher
 "Shaun was personable, accommodating, entertaining, relatable, and engaging as he worked with our students and staff. Shaun is highly skilled and respected as a music artist, author, motivational speaker and person. He utilizes his abilities to bring the message straight to the students and staff in a way that kept everyone engaged and focused the entire duration of the assembly. We would highly recommend Shaun! We want him to come back to our school again soon."

Thane Hutchinson 


"Shaun's assembly with Spanish Fork High School music students was AWESOME! The students were totally engaged and invested the entire time. His energy is infectious and he inspired our students. We loved having him here!"

Bryson Gray


Shaun's message was positive and inspirational, and it also connected with the students in a way that allowed them to consider ways to use music to improve their mental health. If you are in need of a school-wide activity to promote student mental health and well-being, we recommend Live for Music!
