Get Your Team in Sync with a Music Team Building Activity

For your team to work together smoothly, it is important that everyone is in sync. Music team building activities are a perfect way to do just that, literally and figuratively. Music is a powerful tool to bring people together and promote trust, empathy, and relief from stress. Below we will explore what music can do for your team and several examples of different music team building activities.

The Role of Music Team Building Activities

Creates a sense of belonging

Researchers have investigated the tie between music and one’s sense of group belonging. They found, “reactivity to music is related to markers of successful group living.” In more simple terms, music helps us affiliate with groups. In fact, there have been several studies that show people feel closer and more connected through music.

Can help share and explore different cultures

Music is important element of culture. It has been around since the beginning of time and can be used to give insight into different cultures and ways of live. What better way to learn about the uniqueness of the world than through beautiful tunes?

Music makes us feel good

Did you know that when we listen to or play music, our body releases “happy” hormones called endorphins and dopamine? So if you really want to host an event that will be sure to boost morale, make sure it includes music whether you are making it yourself of playing it.
