When he was 4 years old, he took the family boat and rowed it out into the middle of a lake. When his family noticed he was gone, they frantically searched for him and someone noticed where he was. They went to get him in a powerboat, and when they pulled up beside the rowboat, Herky had a huge grin on his face. He has been rowing boats out into the middle of lakes ever since.

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:  Music plays a huge role in society. We use music in so many different ways in our lives; to relax, to escape, to wake up, to motivate, to forget about problems, to create identity, to dream, to mourn, and so many others.

Plato said: “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just, and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate and eternal form.”

Music is universal and found in every culture. It is known to have a soothing effect on the spirit, and to stimulate intellectual development. Studies have shown that music can increase mathematical ability, reading comprehension and reasoning skills. Why not extend its use to the career planning process? In this Webinar, Herky will share a variety of ways to use music as a career development tool; to engage clients, to motivate clients, and to assess their interests, values and passion. Participants do NOT need to have any musical talent whatsoever!


At the end of the webinar, you will be able to:

  • Engage clients in a new and innovative way
  • Expand your repertoire of informal assessment tools
  • Provide clients with new ways to “tell their story”
