Leadership Studies


Music has been an important part of my life for a long time. I have played the drums for seven years and have been interested in the drumming industry for just as long. As a student of leadership I have often pondered how I would combine my studies with my music to find a successful and enjoyable career. If there is one thing I have learned as a student of leadership it is that leadership is everywhere. The subject is so vast and so young that, given the innumerable possibilities, the body of research is quite small. Leadership is most often applied to business, politics, and other respected scholarly fields. Only recently has much consideration been given to leadership and the arts. How exciting it is to see that connection being made.
