Drumming Up A Team
Guaranteed to build stronger, more productive teams. Create unity while celebrating diversity, and infuse the 21st century work environment, as well as people’s lives, with an upbeat spirit of confidence and celebration.
Building Teams, Uniting Companies
Drumming up a Team not only creates a sense of comradery, but the act of playing music within a group teaches people to listen! By encouraging individuals to pay attention to the rhythm of the group they, in turn, become more aware of their position within it. Team building with drums has proven benefits in increasing employee satisfaction, loyalty, and productivity while decreasing stress. Each participant is given their own drum or percussion instrument and they then prepare for a variety of fun facilitated activities!
Variations of this program:
Energizing Rhythms™ (15 min. – 1 hr): A celebratory team building opening/closing activity for corporate events, retreats and conferences.
Rhythms Of Community™ (45 min. – 2 hrs): Team building, energizing and celebrating rhythms for individual departments and the entire workforce.
Community Rhythm Festival™ (30 min. – 1 hr): A facilitated group drumming, Drum Circle-type “jam session” to break the ice and create an upbeat spirit of community celebration.

Leadership Rhythms™ (45 – 90 min.): Conduct the percussion band! Learn the fundamentals of facilitating a drum circle, then take turns practicing them with other workshop participants, as a playful and down-to-earth way to explore Leadership Skills.
Corporate Rhythm Residency™(One or more days): Combine multiple programs throughout one or more days at corporate campuses, conferences, retreats, and more.

Everyone loved it! We may be interested in doing another Drumming up a Team with almost 200 people!
"We had an awesome time! The team didn't want to stop drumming! I told them their food is getting cold, so they finally stopped! LOL! Jim was awesome as well! He kept our energy level up and gave us a brief history of drumming. I will recommend this activity for the rest of my meeting planner team!!! Thank you,"
"Everything went great. Jim was very professional and easy to work with. Thank you all for the work in setting this up!"
The feedback has been nothing but positive. I received several unsolicited comments from many people who could not say enough great things about the program and the facilitators. It was definitely a success!
“Excellent show! The actors were fun and interacted well with your company. We will definitely recommend to others. I enjoyed hearing that co-worker laughter!”
“It was an amazing day… and the team really enjoyed Tools for Schools. It meant a lot to them to help children in the community. There were many teary eyes, including mine!”
