In the video itself, Flea discussed the motivation behind creating the podcast and its connection to the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. He emphasized that the podcast is not only a means to support the school but also a platform to explore different approaches to music education.
Here’s what he said:
“This is Flea for This Little Light: a podcast about falling in love with music. I started a non-profit music school about 20 years ago called the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. And the reason that I started doing this podcast was to benefit the school, but it’s specifically also about music education.
Every single person, I meet so many musicians, from someone who doesn’t even know what a scale is or an eighth note to someone who plays with the philharmonic or someone who is a deeply sophisticated jazz musician. Everybody has a different way. Everybody has a different educational path, and every single one of them is so interesting, fascinating to me, and valid.”
As fans eagerly anticipate the release of ‘This Little Light,’ it’s clear that Flea’s passion for music and dedication to education remain as strong as ever. By bringing together some of the most influential artists of our time, this podcast promises to be a treasure trove of wisdom and inspiration for aspiring musicians and music lovers alike.
