This Is Music, This Is Fun
Team building activities aren’t always fun. In fact, sometimes they’re downright awful. And yet here you are, trying to find something real, accessible and fun for your entire organization. Our programs work for several reasons.
- We’re really good at this – Our team is not only talented and entertaining, we’re adept at leading groups from point A to Z seamlessly. We won’t embarrass you or put you on the spot. In fact, we begin with conversation that’s comfortable and relevant as we move from lyric brainstorm to songwriting and performance. By the time your songs are complete, everyone will be singing along and proud of it.
- Relatable – Music really is a universal language. Even if you can’t carry a tune, songs are an important part of your life and of your colleague’s lives. We help you tap into your universal language to communicate, build relationships and have some genuine fun.
- We’re Not Faking It – We’ve created music for artists ranging from Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Stevie Wonder, Faith Hill, Kesha, Kelly Clarkson and more. But honestly, we’re just as engaged when we’re writing songs with you. That’s because the creative process is always immediate. We’re co-creating with you and your team as we move from blank canvases to your finished masterpieces. We have to be in it and on our toes because we never know just what’s going to happen during the creative process. We do know that together we’ll all make beautiful music.
