Unlock Creative Genius: Learn Music in 1-day!

Musetude has developed a revolutionary system to stimulate genius using music. Using this method anyone can ‘learn the fundamentals of music in 1-day’, irrespective of talent. 

The Musetude program enables students to learn much faster than conventional methods because of its unique approach to life and learning. The Musetude creators firmly believe that everyone on earth is capable of genius and it is just a question of finding the right tools to tap into this infinite potential. Music, as it is taught in the Musetude program, is precisely that tool to get one into a heightened state of learning.

“Education is the manifestation of perfection already existing in man.” – Swami Vivekananda

The creators have reconfigured the way we traditionally think about seemingly complex musical concepts (scales, chords, reading music, notation, composition, coordination of both hands, flow music, timing and lots more) and broken them down into chewable chunks with such flare, that it increases your passion for learning – in a way that is both logical and straightforward.

The Musetude creators have done much research into how the brain works. The pre-frontal cortex or, “fourth brain” (based on research by Dr Paul Maclean) is the most advanced area of our brain and it is also where our capacity for genius lies – the ability to think, create, visualize in patterns, access intuition and other such genius powers.

In life, we often don’t connect to this important part because we are stuck in our “lower brains”, which generate fear-based, negative thinking. These habitual modes of operating are unhelpful because they make us feel that we are not good enough, not strong enough or not talented enough to try new things, which means that we end up living very narrow limited lives. When the 4th brain is switched on, you are supremely capable.

To get yourself to function at will from the 4th brain requires one to be attentive and aware of the workings of mind, body and spirit. This needs one to be constantly aware of their attitude.

Ludwig van Beethoven stated, “Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.” 

Musetude is more than just a music course, it is a journey of self-development. Attendees come away with the ability to play powerful and personal music, but they also have a new and profound awareness of the true nature of life.

The Musetude creators help you push the boundaries of perception and open yourself up to the tremendous possibilities within your being.

“The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.” – Arthur C. Clarke

Some Questions:
1. What do students do with the knowledge gained at the one-day music workshop?
2. Why did you design the Musetude method? What would you consider a successful student?
3. Does music-learning require practice and discipline?
4. If I don’t keep up with my music practice, would all the knowledge learnt at the workshop disappear?
5. I have spent my entire life perfecting the art of music, I don’t believe everybody has musical talent, how can you explain how some people play music better than others?

1. What do students do with the knowledge gained at the one-day music workshop? Are they successful?
Each individual after the workshops finds a unique way to keep the knowledge alive. This experience touches all aspects of their being, sparking it into action on various frontiers. Here’s feedback received from a relative number of  students after their music experience:

  • Some students keep up their practice, by playing twenty minutes once or twice a week, so they develop their keyboard skills: learn various songs, compose songs and perform music.
  • Some students prefer to appear for music exams, as a goal teaches them consolidation, discipline and focus. The exam results are irrelevant, the fun is in the journey, much like life! Most of our students pass with flying colours.
  • Some students don’t continue their music practice after the workshop. They grasped the essence of the workshop which is using heightened focus/willpower as a tool to generate awareness, learning and creative magic. At the workshop, they experience their ability to grasp the vast topic of music within such a short timeframe, thus realizing they can replicate this inspirational experience and philosophy toward whatever they put their heart and soul into.
  • Some students use music and frequencies as a cathartic tool. They are not interested in learning to perform music, but to just heal themselves and get out of their constant mind-chatter. The music keyboard is their sounding board – they sing out their emotions, thoughts and feelings, generate a state of flow, and tap into ‘the space’ between their thoughts to enter the arena of frequency, vibration and energy.
  • Some students use this whole-brain method with its ancient mystical knowledge, to create and invent – igniting their own ideas and breakthroughs in other fields. The workshop opens their creative spirit to endless possibilities – that one is not limited by this time, beliefs and thought patterns.
  • Some students apply the musical concepts and method to learning other musical instruments or other arts.

A student is left to creatively interpret and benefit from either a single point, all six points or some not mentioned.

2. Why did you design the Musetude method? What would you consider a successful student?
We the inventors of Musetude designed this method with the sole gumption of igniting one’s genius potential. We sat for years in meditation questioning ourselves, the universe and the many mysteries of life, which are all too confounding, yet revelatory and simply wow!

Through this search, we used to ‘get-given’ knowledge, inventions, disciplines and creations beyond our times. We wanted to then gift these revelations to the world.

But, we hit a roadblock! We could talk for hours on end, about the many mysteries philosophically but realized that most people could not taste or feel what we meant, by touching ‘genius’. So we wanted to design a workshop that engulfed a human being so totally: body, brain and soul, that it moves them beyond themselves.

By sitting in meditation with this intent, we cracked the code of being able to teach music to beginners so that they could witness their genius. For this reason, we created the music workshop.

For example; Pythagoras saw and designed the Pythagorean theorem, one level is being able to digest the theorem once it is available, the stage above that is being able to pick this theorem out of the grid of knowledge – becoming the designer, the inventor.

And so we decided to use this discipline of learning to help our students to see, to design, to create,  to explore – demonstrating to them the attitude of an explorer. To us, a successful student is one who searches within, stimulates him/herself to invent, design and explore, in wonder!

3. Does music-learning require practice and discipline?

Yes, it does, but that is not the entire truth. The entire truth would be to ‘know thyself’ through thy skill, be it music, work, art or science. Music practice to most people implies, sitting at the keyboard for hours working on scales, chords, songs, etc. But this is NOT the practice we refer to.

The most important practice is to practice seeing ‘music’ in each deed, word, thought and feeling. One will be in harmony with the entire universe! Pythagoras called it tapping into the music of the spheres.

Each act and thought have a frequency. A master musician is in total control of their musical instrument (their body and mind), the instrument that projects frequencies onto this world. Acing in any skill-set, is easy, once the person has sufficient willpower. That’s why ‘genius’ to ‘polymath’ is a natural process as you are in control of your mind, not your mind in control of you.

We encourage our students to spend an equal amount of time in silent reflection as they do with the music skills they learn at the workshop – both go hand in hand for heightened learning. Music is one of the best tools to dig deep within our soul and truly find the reservoirs of wealth hidden within our being.

Yes, learning songs and composing music, requires time, focus and practice – about an hour a week. The process of learning and composing songs will dramatically upshift once one works on perfecting themselves. Our Grade 8 students sit for hours in silence and reflection, which enables them to pass this exam in three months, instead of the usual 8-10 years of practice it generally takes. Once an individual builds sufficient awareness, energy and silence, the grade 8 is a breeze – learning any subject is easy and fun!

4. If I don’t keep up with my music practice, would all the knowledge learnt at the workshop disappear?

Using group energy, we help our students witness their genius in a practical manner learn the fundamentals of music within 1-day! This takes them out of their usual can-do’s and can’t-do’s which transports them into a vaster field of possibilities – bridging the gap between body and soul.

After the workshop, students require discipline and willpower to revisit this genius state they once tapped into. This greatness is intrinsically at their fingertips – it is part of the totality of their being.

As John Muir so eloquently states, “We cannot forget anything. Memories may escape the action of will, may sleep a long time, but when stirred by the right influence, though that influence be light as a shadow, they flash into full stature and life with everything in place.”

Testimonial from our students has told us, that this knowledge and skill-set once received is never forgotten. Even though in their conscious state they believe they have lost touch with their music, once they sit at their keyboard and go through the course material, all they learnt at the workshop comes back to them.

Some in fear of losing this skill-set, redo the workshop and, after sitting through the first few hours, find this knowledge flooding into their being like it never left at all. They feel restless and leave. However, if a student doesn’t have sufficient energy, discipline and will to continue with their musical journey, we work through the process and allow them to attend as many workshops and dedicate an hour a week to their solo experience for the next two-three months, free of cost!

5. I have spent my entire life perfecting the art of music, I don’t believe everybody has musical talent, how can you explain how some people play music better than others?

Everybody is talented, everybody can play music, just like everyone can speak, walk, laugh, etc. Some might be better orators they may have mastered the play of words. But this shouldn’t prevent the rest of humanity from speaking.
In the same way, music is the language of the soul. It communicates that which is beyond words, it transports one in the realm of frequencies and tones. This device called ‘music’ should be made available for the benefit of all! Everyone needs to be able to explore and express themselves using frequency, in order to heal, live fully and grow.

Each person is born with a unique ‘calling’ a ‘purpose’.
Example ONE: Mozart, Beethoven were musical geniuses. They spent their entire life perfecting their musical skills in order to know themselves. Their life becomes music, they are so intoxicated with it, they don’t need any other way of expression.

“Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.” – Beethoven

Example TWO: Einstein, Leonardo, Pythagoras and other such geniuses of the past used music as a conduit to initiate genius. Their musical compositions were not considered masterpieces.

“The theory or relativity occurred to me by intuition, and music was the driving force behind that intuition. My discovery was the result of musical perception.” Albert Einstein

In silent reflection, you will find your unique expression, your purpose. Music to you might be just a tool to connect with your inner self, not a life mission.

We designed the workshop, for people to unlock their genius using music: giving lawyers, healers, professors, householders, businessmen and musicians alike an opportunity to feel the unity, passion and awareness generated, as they enter into the realm of frequency, vibration and energy.

No one is musically untalented, if you can speak, walk, talk in rhythm, your entire being is music! Playing music is natural, it’s easy. Music is an essential part of life. Musical expression will boost your life, ignite your creative spirit. Do not kerb your creative spirit just because someone has labelled you untalented. Music is still for you!

Explore the different facets of your being using frequency, without fear or comparison. Don’t let judgements or memes dictate your music. There will come a time when this expression will pour out of you.

Music is supposed to be fun, creative and an innovative way to express oneself without getting too involved in the discipline, structured and goal-driven mentality that music has become associated with. In today’s society, only the supposedly talented few dare enter into the frequency-arena, and this is a shame! When Pythagoras designed the Western music scale, he did it as a feat of magic, to inspire all, to benefit all to play frequencies designed so mathematically in harmony.

6. I am sceptical as I am a musician, how can a person learn the fundamentals of music in one-day?

This is possible because there are two different areas of the brain being used when learning music. The lower processors of the brain learn through rote, repetition, is emotion-driven or logical. The higher processors learn through creativity, novelty, spontaneity, visualization and intuition.

At the one-day music workshop, we cover all the topics that a student would ever need for a very long musical ride in a holistic, pattern-based way. Of course, to keep music alive, our students still need to keep up their practice at home: learn new songs, create compositions, etc. This holistic approach grants our students the ability to have freedom and fun with their practice: switch between right-brain topics like composition to left-brain topics like reading music or whole brain topics like co-ordination keeping enthusiasm, novelty and fun alive. This attitude allows for accelerated learning.

Acing in a skill can only be achieved once a person ‘knows themselves’. The aim of the method is precisely that – use ‘music’ as a tool to explore YOU! – The multifaceted, multi-dimensional expressions of your being. Most students who have learnt in the conventional method don’t stick with music long enough to gain these benefits of playing an instrument.

Many musicians and music teachers attend the workshop to experience the attitude, the method, brain techniques and mystical truths.

People take years to learn a topic as they drain most of their energy in self-importance or self-sabotage. The way to take quantum leaps in any subject, including music, is through silencing one’s fears, overcoming emotions (anger, stress, etc.) and limiting logic – the lower processors of the brain, thus switching into higher processors which enable heightened learning, focus and creativity.

“The human being holds a universe within, filled with overlapping frequencies and the result is a symphony of cosmic proportions” – Masuru Emoto.
