Bridging his distinguished career from music icons to the visionary business leaders of our time, Freddie Ravel has emerged as a global force for transforming personal and professional growth through the performance, science and communicative powers of music.

Utterly captivated by music since age five, the GRAMMY-nominated composer, pianist and educator began performing worldwide with Brazilian Legend Sergio Mendes by the age of 23. Shortly thereafter, Universal Music released his three chart-topping solo albums, including the #1 hit in America, Sunny Side Up.

Driven by his passion for applying harmonious music creation to empowering life skills, Ravel’s concert appearances, delivered either in English and Spanish, span three decades across six continents. Officially named the “Keynote Maestro”by the city of Los Angeles, Ravel has delighted and mesmerized audiences from the heart of the Amazon to the boardrooms of corporate America while simultaneously inspiring leaders such as India’s former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi and the King of Thailand. To date, Ravel has presented his music and message to 75 countries and counting.

His #1 hits and team collaborations include diverse luminaries such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Madonna, Prince, Yo-Yo Ma, Lady Gaga, Quincy Jones, the Boston Pops and rock legend Carlos Santana. Ravel also co-wrote and co-produced the title track of the Al Jarreau/George Benson release Givin’ It Up, which won two Grammy Awards.

In 1999, Ravel developed a breakthrough system that applies music principles to best business practices called “The Rhythm of Success.”The unique peak performance methodology enhances leadership, collaboration and time management using the undisputed international language of music as its foundation.

In his relentless pursuit for delivering excellence, Ravel consistently receives rave reviews from clients that include Fortune 500 companies such as Apple, Blue Cross, Citi, IBM and Toyota, as well as enthusiastic endorsements from thought leaders such as Deepak Chopra, Arianna Huffington and sports legend Andre Agassi. Always looking forward, Ravel speaks to a brighter future where the art and science of music serves as a sustainable paradigm to bring business, events and society from dissonance to harmony.

  • The Music of Diplomacy

Hailing from parents of Latin American and Eastern European decent, his humble beginnings as a newspaper boy to his rise as an internationally-renowned musical ambassador, Ravel is a living example of the classic American success story, highlighting that our strength and competitive advantage as a nation lie in our diverse cultural roots and experiences. Combined with his unrivaled passion for music and business, Ravel unlocks the minds, hearts and potential of audiences around the world.

    For his ongoing contributions to education through music, Ravel was recently knighted by the Knights of St. John, an organization who has championed hospitals and healthcare for over a 1,000 years. In this interactive program, Ravel combines proven solutions towards resolving conflicts and brings meaningful dialogue backed by scientific data and creative musical expression to appeal to the mind, body and soul of your conference participants.

    In these turbulent times of global chaos and relentless disruption, Ravel equips your group with tangible results revealing how music heals not only the sick—but the ills of today's society by bridging cultural divides that allow conversations for peace to prosper and inspire greatness in leaders and entrepreneurs alike.
