Why this event?

Teaching your people to share the language of music is a terrific way to foster better communication and listening skills, both on and off the job. Teams find this drumming experience to be totally inspirational. Of course, it also happens to be lots of fun.

Led by a professional percussionist, your team starts off in small groups, where they learn the basics of samba beats and breaks. After a series of rhythm-based warmup exercises, they soon move onto real drums and percussion. Each group gets to focus on a different set of rhythms and instruments.

Once they’ve practiced their newfound skills, everybody comes back together for a thundering group drum extravaganza. Colleagues beat, shake, stamp and drum in time together in a pulsating display of teamwork. It’s always fascinating to see shy, reserved personalities emerging from their shells as they get swept up in the social power of room-filling music. You just never know.

BeatsWork is an all-inclusive activity where every person gets a role to play. It provides a perfect metaphor for teams working together in sync to accomplish something greater than the sum of the individual parts.
