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 how to organise this team building effectively. All of this we do according to the numbers of participants and the time you give us.
Tuned steel drum workshops & team builds
The steel pan is a very special instrument in terms of its suitability for musical learning. Whilst playing a musical piece for the first time is always challenging, even a beginner can produce a note. People love striking 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.
However, to complete this challenge work colleagues will have to learn a lot about each other. In doing so they will discover skills that best achieve the common musical goals we set them. These skills will translate well back in the workplace. Initially, groups are encouraged to select their leaders. But we encourage bonding within the group as well as a competitive spirit when the teams start to compete.
We know how to foster motivation, communication, support and trust within a team. We also know that these assets are 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!
