Drumming is easy - even if you’ve never picked up a musical instrument in your life, we can have your staff making music in a matter of minutes. We can have them communicating non-verbally, expressing pure joy and feeling part of the whole group. We can re-inject enthusiasm into their day, help them take risks in a completely non-threatening environment, enable them to interact with work colleagues in a totally different way, we can lower stress levels, disperse frustrations, and make your employees feel alive.
