Bridging his distinguished career from music icons to the visionary business leaders of our time, Rhythm of Success founder 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 award-winning composer, pianist and educator began performing worldwide with Brazilian master 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 73 countries and counting.

His #1 hits and collaborations include producing, recording and composing with such diverse luminaries as Earth, Wind & Fire, Madonna, Prince, Yo-Yo Ma, India.Arie, 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, 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 Rhythm of Success

The Rhythm of Success is a one-of-a-kind program designed to challenge and inspire organizations to discover their untapped potential. The format is fast-paced, entertaining, and as the secrets of the world’s undisputed international language of music are revealed, full of surprises.

No matter what kind of organization—from small companies to large corporations—employees at all levels will tune up to a better future by becoming more collaborative, productive and ultimately more profitable. This multimedia “keynote concert” experience is sure to open or close your meeting on a dynamic high note.

The Music of Leadership

This presentation takes your audience on a deep dive into the role of “Melody” within music and its power as the central message to bring life to your products and services. When leaders “sing” a better future, inspiration resonates across the entire company’s culture.

Resolving Disruption

Disruptions are ever-present and it’s easy for organizations to get out of tune and out of sync. This interactive experience takes your audience into what disruption really sounds like, then transforms that dissonance to resolution. The stunning new composition that is created reveals the wisdom and capability of the audience to achieve their highest potential.

The Pulse of Productivity

In our age of relentless distractions and the increasing demands of profits and productivity, time management is of the utmost importance. In this rhythmic journey through the pulse of the beat, your audience will discover their own Rhythm to move forward in a synchronized fashion to victory, as Duke Ellington wrote in his timeless classic, “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).”

Teamwork: Tapping The Power of Human Harmonics

Have you ever heard a great-sounding band or orchestra where everyone is a soloist? It doesn’t exist. For over a decade, the Gallup polls reveal that four out of five employees are disengaged in their work, costing the U.S. economy over $500 billion annually in lost revenue. Passive listening is so common in our culture that people remember half of what they hear—even moments after they’ve heard it. Illuminating the properties of Harmony to resolve conflict and create breakthroughs, this program helps teams learn how to better listen, engage and achieve collaborative success.

The Music of Diplomacy

"Music’s the great invitation for mankind to transcend spoken word to enhance how we think and put into sync so we hear what is mostly not heard.”

Those words, from his number-one charting release, If Music Could Speak, sum up the central message of everything Freddie Ravel. 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.

Serving as a bridge between legendary music artists, business leaders and the Fortune 100, Ravel has co-published works with such visionaries as Earth, Wind and Fire, Carlos Santana, Deepak Chopra and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter, Yolanda King providing over two decades of music-applied-to-life successes in both the public and private sectors.
