Lessons from Local Leaders:

Scott Kinney

Ever wondered how a unique shopping experience can completely change your approach to music? We’re taking you behind the scenes of an extraordinary music store – Shamrock Music Shoppe. We chat with the owner about the store’s inception, its unique design, and its mission to provide a one-stop-shop for musical instruments, lessons, and more, creating an unparalleled experience for music enthusiasts.

We then shift gears to discuss the significance of a holistic approach to music education. We share personal stories and insights about the importance of fostering skills, not just degrees, and the necessity of dedicated practice time and space. Tune in as we navigate the complex journey of learning music, comparing it to the process of climbing Mount Everest – gradual, challenging, but utterly transformative. 

We wrap up this enlightening episode with the fascinating journey of musician turned music store owner, Scott Kinney and his brother Jeff Kinney, author and illustrator of the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Hear how their distinct paths intertwine in unexpected ways, leading to a delightful treat for fans. We also share heartwarming narratives of students who have found joy and passion in music, emphasizing the importance of understanding and embracing one’s motivations and interests. This episode is a heartening reminder of the power of music and the joy it brings. Don’t miss out!
