My definition of “peace” is non-political. When I teach children about “being and living peace,” my intention is to help children self-actualize a heightened consciousness about the powerful effect of their words, actions and thoughts with themselves and with one another. Becoming sensitive to the fact that everyone has feelings can create an environment that is bully-free, taunting-free and filled with inclusion and respect. Early childhood is the time to begin teaching peace, and my concerts, “Peace Begins with You and Me”, “Peace Begins with You and Me-We’re Bully Free” and “One World-Different & Same” are teaching concerts that encourage all ages to be the highest version of “self” every minute, every day and with every interaction.
