Speech Demo Video


In this video, Freddie begins by dazzling the audience with his piano-playing skills. He then discusses his TUNE UP to Success system. “After 30 years of performing in the world of popular and classical music, the idea occurred to me that we could use the same consistent and solid methods of musical communication to empower any organization,” he says, “where the issues of leadership, team building and active listening can be dramatized in a very powerful way.”

He goes on to explain how music theories can be applied to an individual or a business organization. “When an organization is tuned up to its purpose, it is no different than an orchestra and a great performance,” he says. “The three elements of music: melody, harmony and rhythm, show up in your personal and professional life.”
