An award-winning composer as well as an accomplished and versatile musician and facilitator, Brian Tate attributes the success of his multifaceted career to a love of working with people and a passion for the arts. Brian received his Bachelor of Music degree from the University of British Columbia and went on to further music studies in London, England, and Toronto. His love for music of many kinds has led to a diverse career that includes orchestral and choral conducting and performance; West African drumming; jazz piano and vocals; musical theatre; and composing music for film, television, stage, and the concert hall. As a facilitator in the area of business and education, Brian takes the elements of creativity, process, chaos, and discovery found in the performing arts and transforms them into powerful, interactive group experiences toward developing leadership, authenticity, innovation, and systems thinking.
