Creativity in the Performer

I now understand why this seminar is mandatory for all School of Music students at DePauw. Our current rotation with Professor Foy provides us with the necessary skills required to further on our musical career. Thinking about our goals as a performer is a crucial aspect in order to pursue our goals in our years at DePauw. Creativity is also a vital characteristic of every performance. Without creativity a performance is not unique. This week we have been discussing our goals and experimenting with the creativity inside of each one of us. This creativity will hopefully emerge as we give performances next week. Starting a résumé now is also a good idea and I'm glad that we are getting a start on one now.
