Drumming is great for team building
We were one of the very first team event companies to embrace the use of facilitated drum circles for team building.
A drum circle is highly effective for corporate events, team building, conference and meeting icebreakers and leadership training. We can deliver an event in any location in the UK, USA or worldwide, for any size of group from 5 to 5,000. We’re happy to come to your office or any other venue.
Please contact us for more information.

The market leader in facilitated drum circles
Arthur Hull, the internationally renowned percussionist, is seen by many as having conceived and developed the idea of the facilitated community drum circle. Originally, they enabled avid drummers, curious percussionists and even passers-by to come together in a circle and ‘jam’ for fun. Music was created in ‘the moment’.
The purpose of these gatherings was to express and experience music together. Drum circles are everywhere; youth groups, hospitals, churches or just on the street for no reason. There isn’t an audience, as everyone is part of the performance.
We were one of the very first team event companies in the world to embrace the use of facilitated drum circles for a range of events, including:
- team building
- team meetings
- corporate away-days
- icebreakers for conferences and meetings
- leadership training
- meeting and conference energisers
- corporate parties

Why our drum circles work
One of the major reasons that our drum circles are so effective is that everyone is starting from a level playing field. This means that any hierarchy is quashed, letting every participant make an equal contribution. This is not always possible in many traditional team building events.
Groups very quickly begins to gain confidence in their playing, helped by our expert facilitators. Our facilitator leads the group by using hand signals and body language. Groups quickly become an orchestra that is guided to greater and greater heights, with everyone playing together as one.
Our events take account of everyone having a different level of confidence in drumming. The magic of a drum circle is that the confident ones will initially play lots…and more pensive players will play less. The skills of our facilitators ensure that we gently bring these two elements together.
Just like in your business, there many types of people performing different roles. However small that role, it is still of value. We ensure that individual roles are isolated, just for a second, to let everyone hear just how special they are.
Another reason for the success of our drum events is the feeling that playing together creates. The power of our drumming circles in creating a sense of team connection and energy is unrivalled.
