Join bassist Victor Wooten as he reads from and discusses his book The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth through Music. This session is especially recommended for students in LHUM-100 Artistry, Creativity, and Inquiry Seminar.

Victor Wooten, five-time Grammy Award–winning bassist, is known for both his solo career and his work as a member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones. Wooten is also a skilled naturalist and teacher, published author, magician, husband, and father of four. Wooten illustrates in his book that musical gifts mirror those from life, and that each movement, phrase, and chord has its own meaning, as long as one is open to finding it. Learn more about Wooten's residency.

Host: Associate professor Joseph Miglio, Music Business. This event is part of the 17th annual Liberal Arts Symposium, sponsored by the Liberal Arts Department, Professional Education Division Herb Alpert Scholars Program, the Office for Cultural Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of Faculty Development.
