Flexible Programs – Driven By Music
We know, it’s hard to find great team building programs. The mention of a corporate team building event brings up thoughts of uncomfortable situations and not-so-fun experiences. It doesn’t have to be that way. Each one of our carefully crafted team building programs is genuinely fun, accessible, and approachable. You’ll create, record and perform songs that celebrate your organization’s culture. And best of all, you don’t have to be a singer or an extrovert to participate and have a great time.
Our team of hit-songwriter leaders has won Grammy Awards, CMA awards, and received Emmy and Tony nominations. Most importantly, we’re dynamic leaders who know how to engage your participants with interactive musical events that have redefined corporate team building.
Time frames vary from 30 minute sessions to full day workshops. Group sizes range from 5 to 5,000.
Songs tell stories and most simply put, we’ll help you tell your story through song. Our music team building programs combine participation, entertainment, music and lyrics to create a powerful interactive event. We draw participants in through a step by step process. Whether it’s one small team or a large group breaking into many teams, we get an incredibly high level of buy-in.
Our conference energizers and interactive keynote sessions will bring your event to the next level. No more restless participants and clock-watchers; everyone will get involved as you create, perform and record a song that celebrates your organization’s culture.
Our virtual programs are unique in that they’re not just computer games. We’ve found a way of delivering live, interactive and honestly fun sessions. You’ll gather to share ideas and make real music, just like in our face to face programs. Scalable from small to very large groups.
This is not your average keynote. You’ll collaborate during this experiential session in which we all become songwriters and demystify the creative process. Don’t just sit back – become a participant and gain confidence in your ability to innovate and create. You’ll come away with tips for integrating these skills into both your business and personal life.
Our team building with drumming program is special because it combines the great energy of a drumming event with the proven methods that drive our Team Building Through Song® programs. Our team building with drumming program is highly customizable, able to accommodate from 5 to 1,500 participants.
Every recording artist who releases a new song makes a music video to go with it. So it’s natural that as part of your event, you may want to create a video too! Our music video team building program is lots of fun, with powerful take-aways. You’ll create your company song and then produce a memorable video.
Conference icebreakers are so important in setting the stage for a successful meeting. Our icebreaker sessions will get everyone going as we draw you in and send a signal that this conference won’t be the same ole’ same ole’. Create an energized and engaged atmosphere to help ensure your meeting is a smash success.
Our programs work well for association meetings and conferences, because although your attendees come from many different companies or organizations, there’s a commonality that brings everyone together. That commonality becomes the foundation for our song session. We provide value with actionable learning take aways and engaging, interactive sessions.
We design each of our sessions with your goals in mind, with options to break into teams, or create a song as one group – even with over a thousand people the room. When you inspire and motivate a large group it’s contagious. We’ve found the key to doing this, ensuring a high level of individual participation and engagement.
Team building in small groups can be a real challenge. When there are fewer voices in the room, every voice counts. Team Building Through Song allows even the shyest of individual contributors to lend their voice and ideas in a fun, low-pressure, collaborative environment designed for music novices and virtuosos alike.
If you’re interested in giving back to the community, our corporate social responsibility programs provide great opportunity to be a part of something wonderful – community giving and musical team building. We have two options, both of which allow you to engage in some real teamwork and find inspiration through connecting with organizations in need.
Client Success Stories
Large Group Team Building Programs
We start in general session with our program introduction. This includes a brief spoken introduction and a musical performance by our hit-songwriters. During our introduction the mood of everyone in the room will go from, “I can’t believe I have to do this” to “I can’t wait to do this”.
We break everyone into teams. Each team is led by one of our songwriter-facilitators and that’s key to keeping larger teams engaged. Every team will create and record their own unique song. There’s opportunity to break into smaller sub-groups within the team breakouts.
After each team creates and records their songs, we all gather back in the main room for team performances. Performances can take place immediately following the team songwriting sessions, or they can be elaborate shows on stage during an evening dinner or awards event. Regardless of when you perform, it’s always fun as teams take the stage to show off and compete for awards.
If this sounds scary it’s not. You’ll be part of a group, you’ll be proud of what you’ve done and you’ll be led by an amazing songwriter performer who will give you confidence and make you feel comfortable on stage. Honestly, you’ll go way beyond comfortable. You’ll have a blast.
Large Group General Sessions, Keynotes
Writing a song with over a thousand people in one room; keeping it engaging and interactive…Can it be done? Yes, yes, yes!
After our program introduction, our songwriter-leaders will jump off stage with wireless microphones as we get everyone involved. We’ll ask questions to get ideas flowing as themes and lyric suggestions fill video screens in the room. Participants can also share ideas via live media streams like a conference app or Twitter.
Along the way, we give out shakers, tambourines, harmonicas and more as we create both a song and a fun performance.
In this large group setting there’s still room for small group interaction.
Everyone can contribute as we invite small groups to work together and then share ideas back with the entire group.
This interactive song session culminates with the whole crowd on their feet as we perform and record your masterpiece.
Quite often small groups want to spend more time and get in-depth with specific goals or topics. That’s not to say pure fun and team bonding isn’t important, but small groups can easily address specifics with opportunity for lots of back and forth dialogue.
Stories are a powerful part of every organization’s culture and great songs tell stories. As you tell your story through songwriting, our sessions help you better understand the essence of who you are as a team.
You’ll create a song based on your shared experience. Your song might be about your company in general, or a new product launch, or the mission of your team within your company. We explain rules of brainstorming – there are no bad ideas, no judgment, so everyone feel s comfortable contributing.
You’ll start with a great melody and you’ll start with lots of ideas. We’ll go broad, filling the walls with large themes and small specifics. Then will narrow it down as you find your hook or song title and craft your song around it. There’s lots of laughter along the way as one rhyme leads to another.
Let’s not forget the music. Songs are upbeat, emotional and they draw us in. By the time your song is complete everyone will be singing along as you record you masterpiece for posterity.
