Dr. De La Calle uses music as a tool to transform people’s consciousness so that they can realize their true identities. His unique contributions to children’s education have been used by the United Nations to promote the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development goals as per the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet.
His innovative approach to music education added invaluable knowledge to the area of fundamental skills development in children, with a specific focus on the age group of 4 and 8 years old. Dr. De La Calle’s research revealed that the joyful experience of music education positively impacts transversal learning with maths and languages; social-emotional intelligence and creativity.
Dr. De La Calle’s musical background traverses many cultures, traditions, and continents. Drawing on this experience, his teachings are based on the foundational principle that life is an art to live and a work of art is the expression of our personality as a whole, of our sensibility and ability. He has demonstrated that teaching music can be used as an effective tool in education to develop the child’s character (human and spiritual values, social-emotional intelligence, and creativity).
Through his work with children, he was inspired to create a space that can facilitate the holistic education and nurturing of children and empower children on their journey on self-discovery and personal transformation.
His lectures, concerts, and workshops worldwide have helped provide humanitarian aid to educational institutions and to needy hospitals in Peru (e.g. providing medical equipment, medicine containers, and financial aid) and provide free distribution of plant-based food. Through his many concerts in Japan, he helped foster relationship building between the governments of Japan and Peru which facilitated his humanitarian work in Peru.
