Welcome to music team building. What is it? It’s team building you don’t have to hate! It’s genuine, it’s fun and universally relatable. Because after all, music is an important part of everyone’s life. Led by Grammy award winning hit songwriters, you’ll create and record songs that will motivate and inspire your entire organization.
You don’t have to be a singer or an extrovert. You only have to suspend disbelief and show up. We’ll make you comfortable, we’ll make you laugh. We’ll bring you a collaborative and creative activity that gets results.
We begin with an entertaining musical and spoken introduction. This sets the stage, provides context and warms everyone up.
After our program introduction, each team works with a songwriter-facilitator. During these fun, guided sessions, we’ll lead you through conversation that evolves into lyric ideas and lyrics that become your original songs.
When your songs are complete you’ll perform and record, creating lasting take-aways. There’s opportunity to sing, to play percussion and more, but there’s never pressure to perform.
- Our team programs range from very small groups to large conferences.
- Agenda times range from 1 hour to half-day events and occasionally longer.
- Locations include hotels, conference centers, offices, recording studios and more.

HOW MUSIC TEAM BUILDING WORKS
Tell your story, sing your song – 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. We get an incredibly high level of buy-in.
Create powerful take-aways, your songs – What differentiates your organization? What are your important goals or your mission? What’s the essence of your message? You’ll craft songs that communicate the best of who you are and what you do. The experience is a blast. And after the experience you’ll have your songs. Catchy, memorable musical masterpieces to share and keep, long after your music team building is a memory.
Record and Perform – When you finish creating your masterpiece, each team records their song and then everyone gathers together for performances with awards. Performances often take place immediately following the team songwriting sessions, or they can be more elaborate shows on stage during an evening dinner or awards event. Whether simple or elaborate, performances are always fun as teams take the stage to share what they’ve done.
Comfortable Challenge – If this sounds scary, it’s not! You’ll be part of a group, you’ll be proud of what you’ve done. You’ll be led by an amazing songwriter performer who will give you confidence and make you feel comfortable on stage. You’ll go way beyond comfortable; you’ll be totally engaged.
MP3s of your songs are available for download after all our events.
The Music Team Building Differentiator
So many companies promise individual attention and customization but fail to deliver. In our case, crafting a program just for you is part of our DNA. We like to be flexible and we love to help you succeed.
Team building with music is definitely different. From start to finish, we make each client experience fun, comfortable, productive and ultimately; exciting!
Before each event, we take time to learn about our clients. We want to know why you’re doing this. We’ll learn about your organization and about your specific goals for your event. We embark on a truly creative process at each program, so we can’t just phone it on. We have to be in it with you as we help you go from blank canvas to finished masterpieces.
We bring in melodies for each team and you’ll start with conversation. You’ll discuss big themes, small ideas, goals and challenges. Those ideas become catchy titles, energetic song choruses and verses full of character. There’s always lots of interaction and laughter as participants take their ideas and make them rhyme with the previous lines as your song takes shape.
As you perform and record your original songs, there’s opportunity to sing, to play percussion instruments, harmonicas or our nice looking air guitars. We’ve seen CFO’s working dance moves in front of hundreds of people.
About Our Clients
We’re a small and personal company, but we deliver big. Looking at our list of clients over the past few years, even we’re surprised by the depth and breadth of our client base. The commonality with all our clients is that they understand the importance of workforce engagement and the power of innovate thinking. They understand the value of bringing in fun and creativity as a catalyst to energize and coalesce everyone within an organization.
And lofty goals aside, sometimes fun is enough. Sharing genuine experience really does help working groups bond and build trust. Fun and genuine experience is foundational to every program we deliver.
We’ve written songs with application specialists from Siemens Healthcare, with managers from Harley Davidson, with leaders at L’Oreal, accountants from PricewaterhouseCoopers, small privately owned companies and many non-profit organizations.
When the leadership group from Walt Disney Imagineers needed a team building program to help them with their own creative process, guess who they called? Yep, the Kidbilly Music Crew…we did that!
Every once in a while a potential client will ask us if we can guarantee ROI from our musical team building events. My reply is “No, I don’t have metrics or other tricks to prove that kind of ROI.” But we can promise a different kind of ROI that’s equally important. We call it, ROInspiration®.
You’ll come away motivated and re-energized by this collaborative music team building activity in which you’ll see, feel and hear the true potential of your organization. We’ve performed with and created music for artists ranging from Keith Urban, Steve Wonder, Blake Shelton, Ray Charles and many more. But most importantly; we love the challenge, the fun and the immediacy of helping our team building clients create their own hits.
