In a world that often feels divided, it can feel hard to continually find ways to expand our kids’ bubbles…but it doesn’t have to be that way.
With Peace Culture Music, our students are exposed to different cultures, diversify their perspectives, and are given access to the world beyond the walls of their classrooms. Using musical instruments and cultural experiences from across the globe, we aim to teach everyone how to dream a little bigger, love a little harder, and approach everything with curiosity.
From small groups to large assemblies, Peace Culture Music was designed with your unique needs in mind. No matter the size, age group, or place, we’ll bring the energy and rare musical instruments to you so your students learn how to unite in rhythm, and find the joy, wonder, and curiosity in it all.
Not at a school? We’d love to talk anyways — we bring the experience of Peace Culture Music everywhere that needs it.
As I’ve traversed the globe, I’ve immersed myself into musical culture at every step. During my experience as a world-class (and world-traveling) musician, I’ve collected hundreds of rare musical instruments and countless musical experiences. Using my global experience (and collection of musical tools), I started Peace Culture Music to help every human and global citizen learn in an interactive, inspiring way.
Musical teacher education to help you energize, inspire, and foster a love of culture and music for all.
Specialized offerings and interactive experiences focused around global instruments, cultural traditions, capoeira, yoga, travel, and more.
Hands-on musical education for everyone from educators to retirees and everyone in between.
Immersive, exciting musical education and programming to add wonder and joy to every child’s music experience.
Using musical instruments and cultural experiences from across the globe, Peace Culture Music teaches everyone to dream a little bigger, love a little harder, and lean into curiosity. We crafted our offerings to expand your worldviews, deepen your joy, and forge stronger connections. Here’s how we do it:
My approach and unique programming come from years as a musician, traveler, and educator — and the work I do with my clients and students leans on that experience. When you work with me, you’ll be getting a high-touch experience truly unparalleled in the enrichment space itself.
An experience for all age groups, interests, dreams, and passions — forge new bonds with group drumming and world rhythm experiences through “djembe” style drums.
Ignite your curiosity by learning stories of traditional cultures and marveling at geological and musical treasures from around the world.
Our expansive instrument catalogue and museum spans both time and the globe resulting in a fully immersive lesson.

"Daniel was very patient. Especially with an audience of younger children, many of which had special needs. He was able to accommodate all ages and abilities in his presentation and demonstrated an intimate understanding of the children and maintain their interest. Daniel was able to keep the flow going and redirect student behaviors in age appropriate ways. He has a natural way with children and we look forward to his return!"
