Music Team Building is one of the pleasant experiential training categories to practice. In fact, musical activities allow participants to form their team in an absolutely creative way, but without an extreme dispersion of energy and without the need to undertake a long journey far away.
What is music? It’s a universal language that conveys emotions better than any word or gesture. Music connects people in a direct way, breaking down evert limit or border. Thanks to it, people can learn how to communicate not only to the mind but also directly to the heart. It is the perfect way to transfer the company’s vision and mission to both managers and employees. Also, music can make them feel part of a single great mechanism, of a group that shares the same ideas and works for the same purpose.
Do you think the team is not very attuned? There is no listening or communication, so the team members do not understand each other? Are you frustrated because you feel like you are part of an orchestra that has not tried the songs to play before performing? Does everyone go their own way and so you can’t create a melody between them?
So why not try to “harmonize” your team with one of these Music Team Building activities?
Music speaks directly to the unconscious and so there is no need for words. We understand each other perfectly even between different languages and cultures. The important topics we touch with music are therefore diversity and inclusion. Integrating a team of people who come from very different experiences is usually not easy, yet it can be easily done with music. Musical language is good for any culture or language! That’s because rhythm and melody speak indifferently to everyone.
In other words, we can say that the orchestra is an excellent metaphor to represent every company. Each instrument has it own role, which may appear insignificant but is absolutely necessary. Nobody can stop playing their instrument without damaging the entire orchestra. Thanks to the Team Building musical activities, the team will learn to align, act together and listen to each other. All qualities of a great importance for the team’s work!
You don’t need to worry, though. For this activity it isn’t required any artistic or musical preparation. During the Team Building event, each participant will be assisted by a professional coach who will give all the necessary basic explanations. Making music has never been that easy!
Team Building musical activities are useful to make the team member develop many important qualities they can take advantage of every day in their personal and working life.
Some of them are:
Moreover, we see that the ability to help each other, to listen to each other, to communicate in harmony and to have the necessary energy to carry out the project are the fundamental skills that the working team develops during the activity. Furthermore, they will also develop their attention and their ability to get involved. Last but not least, the musical approach produces a high level of emotional involvement among the participants, which makes the activity particularly pleasant and fascinating for everyone.
One of our musical activities is the Percussion Orchestra. This team building format consists in a group of people who come together in a circle playing drums of various kinds. It’s not a preparation for a performance or a show, but a complete event in itself.
With this activity and with recycled or makeshift instruments, we will form the orchestra of your company. Here, just like in the office, everyone will have their own role and will be able to realize the importance of each tool. The main goal is to share the rhythm and be in harmony with yourself and with the other participants.
The number of participants can be various. It can change from a small number of players up to a hundred people.
The great thing about this activity is that, no matter how many people are playing, the Percussion Orchestra offers equality because there is no hierarchy within it. The main goal is just to share the rhythm and be in harmony with yourself and with the other participants. Everyone will work to form a group consciousness and each member will have a lot of fun! A collective voice is formed, which emerges from the group while playing all together.
There are no spectators in the Percussion Orchestra, but anyone is at the same time part of the musical experience as a musician and as a member of the audience. There is no rehearsal, music is improvisation! Nobody is wrong, everything is welcome, and any outcome will just be great! There is full freedom of expression. There is no teacher, but a coach whose job is to create a team spirit following the rhythm of music.
