Rock Band

From the Rolling Stones to Coldplay, participants will learn how to be the quintessential rock group - playing and performing music together in a very short timeframe.

Participants will experience the excitement that a band feels – a song taking shape, the joy of creating a cohesive sound. By the time they deliver their final performance everyone is buzzing. It is an inspiring team event – there is a is an unforgettable feel-good factor created between each individual and their colleagues, which will translate directly to positivity they can take back to the workplace.

Anyone can do this. Even those with no musical experience will gain the ability to play or sing through our skilled coaching team. And those with musical experience will learn to play with a completely new band and will be challenged to perform in a role that they are unfamiliar with in any musical situation.

The culmination of this challenge offers two options: 1) The challenge of arranging a well-known pop song for the final performance 2) The band cross-trains each other for the final performance. We will work with you to configure the event structure around the programme objectives and provide detailed insights and suggested actions so you can continue to move forward.

Music Explosion

This shared experience activity is perfect for larger group sizes and/or where time and budget may be constrained, as well as being a great bonding exercise for smaller group.

Delegates will learn to sing and play well known pop songs in harmony as one large group. Split into 3 sections - rock choir, ukulele orchestra and rhythmic funk circus they will learn to play together and then perform. This is our alternative to the more common African drumming and creates a much more valuable shared experience.

Song writing

During this workshop the participants will adopt a three phase approach to writing a song, delivering a finished piece entailing a process that can be tailored to key learning objectives.

The first phase will be to write lyrics with the help of our tutors. The lyric writing naturally forms a team building exercise. The subject of the lyrics may be of their choosing, a topical theme or a communication challenge.

Phase 2 will be to decide how the song will sound; the style, tempo and the feeling they wish to convey.

They will work with a team of professional musicians and bring the song to life. Their ability to direct them with limited musical knowledge and create an impactful song will be tested to the full. In the final phase the song will be performed with all delegates singing, backed by our team of musicians.

Throughout the whole process the delegates learn at pace individually, collectively and will be responsible for making decisions at every juncture. They will also develop rudimentary musical knowledge and how to apply it.

Jazz quartet

This exercise is perfect for small groups who wish to excel at working together. The session will begin with an intensive introduction to key concepts in jazz music, how it is performed, the way it evolves through a piece, the importance of improvisation, listening and being completely tuned in to what each musician is doing.

Next a professional quartet plays a jazz standard and the delegates make observations. A detailed facilitated discussion follows to consolidate their understanding.

At the climax of the session the delegates will have assigned themselves roles to direct the quartet. A second jazz standard is performed adhering completely to instructions from the delegates who determine if, how and when each element takes place.

Participants will gain and use some basic musical principles, however, the key benefits are to conquer a steep learning curve collectively and use their communication skills to deliver challenging “real time” outcomes in an unfamiliar domain.
