Peta Minter - Founder & Trainer

Uniting groups and teams through the power of rhythm and music

Hi, I’m Peta Minter. I believe life is fulfilling when we experience harmonious connection, positive communication and creative collaboration with each other. My passion is working with people and facilitating programs that support people’s lives and work relationships in corporations, communities and individuals.

My tool is MUSIC! Using drums, percussion and traditional musical healing instruments, I facilitate programs that are fun, lively, soothing and healing.

I’m a professional facilitator, corporate trainer and founder of Positive Music, I bring the power of rhythm, calmness and team spirit into your workplace and life.

Our Team-Building and Corporate Wellness programs incorporate rhythm, music and sound to give you the Ultimate Team-Building and Wellness Activities, including Energetic Rhythm-Events, Mindfulness Programs and Soothing Sound Baths.

I have over 25 years experience facilitating rhythm to all kinds of individuals, groups and teams. The programs I design bring people together in creative ways, harmonising and uniting groups and teams, seeing the essence of who they are. Together we witness inspirational human moments.

Are you looking to unite and engage your team or to break the ice for your next event? Please contact us.
