"I highly recommend Bjarke Falgren business talk/solo concert for conferences, meetings, teambuilding etc." Nikolaj Jørgensen Manager Finance PRJ Novo Nordisk A/S

Turn up the music and optimize the production

 

An ancient Greenlandic saying goes: “When the soul is filled, we begin to sing.” And that is true – because in a world where we are spending such a huge amount of energy on keeping in shape and eating healthy, we forget about the spiritual dimension that art can bring to us.

We are living in an age in which we are bombarded with feelings of guilt in relation to whether we are exercising enough, eating healthy and being sufficiently determined and structured.

There is a lot of focus on the individual and on individual goals, while we often forget that our “motor” is functioning at its best when it is driven by desire, a community, a feeling of cohesion, and of making a difference for someone else.

Music and culture is something we have and share with each other; something that opens up to new potentials and inspires us to listen, to delve into, to experience, and to study more of it all.

Today you might consult a coach when you want to inspire and restructure. But instead you could turn to me and my violin for a spiritual and inspiring vitamin injection, e.g. on a day-seminar with many different speakers, or as an independent presentation with focus on passion, creativity, improvisation, and communication

For many years I have taught composition and improvisation in several music conservatories. I use this knowledge to put focus on synergy, creativity, being able to listen and feeling impulses, and how to translate these inputs into actual action.

The music can teach you to listen to yourself and others

The music can teach you to listen to yourself and others, secure concord between what you say, and the way it is perceived. In the language of music, we call that harmony!

Let the music speak; not so many words, not so much focus on how you, by using all sorts of models, can change how you do things in your work life – and in personal life.

The biggest changes in habits, personality, and life development often happen through love for another human being, or when we feel, that we are alive to such a degree, that we feel like getting a little more of it all.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything”, Plato

Sessions
