Team-Building Workshops and Wellness Programs

Yes, all participants receive a drum or fun percussion instrument to play.

Clinical research is now providing evidence that group drumming increases productivity, reduces stress and increases feelings of wellbeing. Our custom designed rhythm-events are a rapid process for group development. It encourages clear communication, deep listening, develop leaders, resolve conflicts and enhance connection.

Our workplace programs are fun and energetic way to boost morale, increase productivity and build relationships in your team.

We cater to small to medium size groups from 8 to 80 people.

Absolutely! We work closely with event planner to design a program that delivers your conference or program message and metaphors. We tailor each program for your specific needs and give examples to refer to. These experiences can relate to objectives of overall larger event, program, team or company.

If there are more than 25 people in your group, a PA system (sound system with one head microphone) will be required. However, we can supply PA/head microphone equipment and sound engineer on request for an additional fee.

Venue Considerations

We usually come to your workplace or event venue.
Depending on the how many participants, it could be a conference space or board room. You will need a big enough space for full circle/concentric circles, preferably carpeted to keep drumming at a low volume and enough chairs for all participants.

The ideal set-up for our 60-90 minute team-building programs is full circle or concentric circles with one or two aisle ways, depending on how many participants. The drum circle space to be cleared of all tables, unless the event is a 15 minute energizer or ice-breaker, for which we have a dedicated program format.

For example room size for a team-building or group bonding 60-90 minute session for 80 participants is no less than 15 x 20 meters.

For a workplace wellness program all is needed is a board room size space (depending on how many participants) at your workplace or venue of choice.

When choosing the drum circle space, avoid abstractions such as pillars and lecterns blocking views. Please contact us for details.
