Why Drumming works for team building

Group drumming has proved to be highly effective for team building because it synchronises a team within minutes, rhythm is universally relatable, all people respond to rhythm, and rhythm is the foundation of music in cultures all over the world. Once everyone is synchronised (working together in harmony), the team is leveraging group consciousness to obtain a common goal. The goal cannot be achieved by individual members acting alone, but working as a team makes it possible and achievable.

Drumming team building is suitable for people of all age groups and cultures, and works just as effectively with a group of people from different countries and cultures, as a team from the same company or department. We facilitate the drumming session in such a way that makes it accessible to all, inspiring and fun to participate in.

Interactive Drumming

Our speciality. We bring all the drums, set up - and soon you'll be making music together, guided by our Professional drumming facilitators.
Interactive drumming is a powerful experience that transforms a group to being energised and inspired, as well as enhancing social interaction & communication.
It's all about creating synergy - drumming together gets the team to work as one.

Group drumming is ideal for all functions - company team building, school workshops, parties, socials, events, conferences, corporate wellness days, weddings, tour groups...

Percussion & drum lessons

We offer group & individual drum lessons for Djembe, Conga, Bongos and related percussion instruments - shakers, bells and more. Private drum lessons focus on teaching rhythms, timing, as well as hand techniques for drumming. The types of drumming we focus on are West African (Djembe)and Cuban (Conga), however other types of hand drumming can also be explored as there are many similarities.
There are some sounds which require advanced technique such as slaps, these take time to learn, however there is a proven method for teaching these techniques. By focussing on rhythms, time and techniques the learning curve is accelerated, and it instils confidence in playing and performing.
