We’ve spent our lives successfully pursuing creative endeavors. We bring this creative passion to everything we do!

Meet Our Team

It’s not enough that we’re entertaining and musical. Vital to our success is that everyone on our team is a dynamic leader who excels in keeping you and your group highly engaged. We’ll get you from point A to point Z on time and with great results.

A Different Kind Of Team Building Company

Focused on You
We know what you’re thinking; every team building company says that they tune into each individual client, yada, yada, yada…and to a degree that’s true. So then how are we different? The very essence of our job is to co-create, to collaborate with you. We embark on a creative journey with all our clients as we help you tell your story through the activity of songwriting. In order for this to work, we establish trust and learn about your organization so we can lead your team from blank canvas to finished songs.
Passionate Leadership
Every one of the Kidbilly Music Crew is a passionate performer, songwriter and group leader. Yes, our team members have some serious musical credits and talent. But there are key additional ingredients that everyone on our staff has. We know how to ask the right questions. We know how to lead you through group think and group fun in a seemingly no holds barred musical experience that does indeed have structure and purpose. And since fun is foundational to everything we do, we have to be smart, quick and effortless. Being part of our team is not for everyone. And when you work with us, you won’t be working with just anyone.
Expert Execution
Have you ever gotten a glimpse back stage at a concert or other type of performance show? The seemingly simple presentation the audience sees in front of the curtain is supported by detailed, complex and careful planning. It’s hard making something look easy! But this is what we do with every program we facilitate. We make sure all the moving parts come together. We make sure nothing is missing, ever. We communicate clearly and we always…that’s right; always stay on agenda.
Sharing Our Joy
Writing a hit song is a blast. But believe it or not, we get just as excited about the challenge of helping our clients create songs about the work they do. Whether we’re on on a big stage with someone famous or at a conference center with the not so famous, we’re always engaged and enthusiastic. Every program we do is brand new because we’re in it with you, helping you create on the fly. We ask the right questions to help you understand who you are and what you want to say. But you are our creative partners.

Does Music Work?

A team building company built around music is certainly a niche. When we started this venture, music team building wasn’t even a thing. But now interactive musical programs are definitely a thing and we’re proud to be one of the creators of our niche market. For a small company, the depth and breadth of our client base is a bit surprising. That’s because what we do really works.

Music brings people together. It helps boost engagement and inspires innovative thinking. It’s a bit cliche to say that music is the universal language, but like all good cliches it’s true. Music quickly builds bridges. For example, two people from opposite sides of the globe may begin to talk and discover they share the same favorite band or song. A shared musical memory like that opens lines of communication and builds trust.

Whatever your goals or themes are, writing songs about them will enable everyone to connect with what’s important in a way that’s lasting and easily relatable. You may have trouble memorizing your mission statement or corporate values but we know you can sing the lyrics to many of your favorite songs! This is because a song lyric communicates story in an emotional way, making deep connections that stay with us. Now imagine the power of communicating your corporate story, your shared experience or your goals through song.

For everyone on your team, you’ll create deeper and more authentic resonance with your work life, much the way we all resonate with favorite songs from our entire life.

We’re not big on labels, since as creative types we prefer to be iconoclastic. But we all have to hang our hats on something and so we do call ourselves a team building company. The truth is, we help organizations tell their stories through song in many different settings that include interactive conference sessions, motivational keynotes, convention kick-offs, making music videos and yes, multi-team events with song competitions.

The most important thing about us is about you. Drop us a line, throw us a challenge. Invite us to help you do something you’ve never done – and we’ll help you create a more inspired and innovative workforce.
