We have a lot of experience in tailoring team building sessions for both public organisations and businesses. We understand the different demands of this special kind of music workshop and know how to organise team building effectively, according to the numbers of participants and the time that is made available to us.
The steel pan is a very special instrument in terms of its suitability for musical learning. Even though playing a musical piece for the first time will always be challenging, producing a note is easy even for a beginner. People love hitting drums, because the sonic rewards are so immediate and satisfying. With steel pans, because they are tuned percussion instruments, participants have the added thrill of producing tones for actual songs.
Our professional facilitators can have total novices playing something very recognisable at the end of a workshop session, but to complete this challenge work colleagues will have to learn a lot about each other, discovering skills that best achieve the common musical goals we will set them; skills which will translate back to the workplace.
Groups are encouraged to select leaders and we encourage bonding within the group as well a competitive spirit when the teams compete against each other.
We know how to foster the motivation, communication, support and trust within a team that is required for a successful steel band performance. A winning team – fairly judged by the participants themselves – will emerge, but everybody participating will benefit from the experience. So, everyone’s a winner!
