For Business and Industry

What does successful collaboration look like and how does it work?

How does improvisation apply to business and how does it work?

What is authenticity and why is it important in the workplace?

what’s music got to do with it?

performance-lectures and workshops for the business community

My performance-lectures and workshops for the business and industry answer these questions and more.  Designed to be educational and engaging, my presentations deliver insightful and informative content through word and music.

Live performance opens the mind to absorb critical-need business skills in compelling and illuminating ways. 

Words define.  Music demonstrates. The combination is indelible!

connection to music

What’s music got to do with these topics? Plenty! As a career professional classical musician, I demonstrate the skills you want to improve. To produce coherent and compelling sounds from the piano, I have had to innovate, create, continuously improve, collaborate, communicate, improvise, problem-solve, and focus – the very skills I want to teach you.

Dylan Savage offers Performance-Lectures and Workshops for the business community.

it’s different

Seated at a piano keyboard, I talk about a particular topic and perform frequent musical examples to illustrate concepts and points. I present my lecture and workshop topics from the perspective of a concert pianist.

what you learn

First, I define a topic or skill, then I demonstrate through music as a process, and finally I show how it can be transferred and applied to fit your needs.


Each lecture or workshop is delivered in an ‘edutainment’ format – educative and fun. When it’s fun, the message sticks!
