See you there!

I'm Daniel Barber.

My spirit name is Two Trees...

I started on piano at 4, early enough prep for a thoroughly musical life, but I also became obsessed with bringing more healing justice and love into the world. 

Throughout 20 years spent in social work, quantitative social systems research, computing tech support, video production for nonprofits, and political activism, I’ve collaborated with many capable people addressing lots of good questions.

One of my favorites is “How do we get from where we are now to where we most want to be?”


For 20 years, I didn’t play much music at all. I wanted to get to the piano and teach myself to improvise, but I kept hitting walls and didn’t know where to turn for help, so I kept setting it aside.

I learned all too well the regret of so many years having passed without really playing.

In 2001, I was inspired to come back to the piano and began playing professionally.  I went full-time playing music in 2006 and along the way I've learned quite a bit about adult learning and about improvisation (both musical and theatrical).

I've come to see that not only is music improvisation fun and engaging, it offers unique insights into how to get from where we are now to where we most want to be.

And that's worth learning!!
