About Music Savvy
My name is Michael Lake and I am the guy behind Music Savvy.
I am a Grammy-nominated trombonist who loves creating music and video, writing, teaching, and helping musicians make the most of their talents and their life’s work. I’m also Dad to two very special young men.
Throughout my entire business career, I never stopped creating and playing music. I was lucky enough to help build two thriving financial companies with my best friends, and I learned a ton about life and business along the way. But four years ago, I said goodbye to my business buddies so that I could do full-time what I most wanted to do, which is help musicians.
Throughout these past four years, I’ve published a dozen books and created two successful courses on improvisation, and interviewed over 75 leading jazz musicians. I write a popular blog and continue to help a wide range of musicians promote and market themselves online.
Can I help you?
