A Powerful Tool for Building Teams

Drum Cafe offers an unforgettable teambuilding experience. We use interactive group drumming to support teamwork and communication in the corporate community.  Our clients find our format powerful and useful as a business tool.

With a team of world-class drummers and a drum for each participant, a Drum Cafe facilitator skillfully conducts the group so that within minutes they are drumming together in perfect harmony. We customize our message through a consultation with the client where we craft a unique message that is relevant & meaningful to the participants. The effect of experiencing your company as a synchronized drumming orchestra is both moving and highly motivating for each participant.

Group drumming is possibly the oldest form of teambuilding to date. For thousands of years people have been using the drum for communication, preparation for battle and community celebration. Drum Cafe session will help to break down barriers and push boundaries with a great unifying effect. It fosters cooperation and revitalizes the workforce. It is a metaphor for high performance teaming.

“To say the event was outstanding would be an understatement. The team led us through a dynamic, organized session with high energy and humor. This was like no team building we had ever experienced before. Our participants were engaged and energized, and the team building “broke down barriers” in our group to prepare us for the 3 days ahead. Some initial feedback from our participants: “This was the best team building event I have ever attended.” “My favorite part of the past three days was the drumming event.” We had 100% enthusiastic group participation. And even those people we had not expected to participate joined in with excitement.”
