As I have been a professional musician for most of my life, I am always concerned about the health of the music industry and the up-and-coming musicians that will support it. At the moment, with tumbling music instrument sales and a generation lost to the playing of video games, the natural pool from which tomorrow’s musicians will emerge and grow is getting smaller.
With the team building activities that we offer, such as drumming and singing, certain individuals attending these sessions often find the spark of inspiration to take activities even further. It is a wonderful by-product of our overall mission to deliver uplifting and unique team experiences. This is because we show people that creating music: is fantastic fun, is not as hard as they might first imagine and makes them feel alive.
In fact, the desire to take things forward is probably the best feedback we can receive, and it often happens. For example, at the end of drumming workshops, we are regularly asked questions about how people might buy a drum or where could they join a local drumming group.
Within our events, participants that played any type of instrument in any type of band in their youth rekindle the fond feelings of camaraderie and self-expression.
Many times in our One Voice singing event, I overhear colleagues talking about how they used to love singing at school and how our singing session had reminded them of that. Many often express the desire to join a choir.
While a lot of this reaction is just immediate excitement that is created on the day, we are aware of many participants taking things further. So, as part of our mission plan to provide world-class team events, we will continue to subtly invigorate budding artists, musicians and dancers that we meet each day, and do our bit to keep the arts afloat. After all, this is part of what is at the heart of Creative Team Events – to inspire people to expand their horizons!
