“How does it work as a team builder?” “You have to listen and work together to make music. The ukulele is easier than many instruments… you can make music in an hour… a great leveller.”
HOW DO UKULELES BUILD TEAMS?
You have to listen to each other
You have to work together
It boosts creativity
It breaks down barriers
It’s FUN, inclusive, different & memorable. You’ll play at least one song.
You’ll talk about it (and maybe watch your music video) for a long time after the event ends!
Are you looking for something to get your staff together? Want to organise fun team building events in London to include everyone? We do travel, upon request. We think you should all learn to play the ukulele with us! Watch the videos of our sessions with LOCOG (the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games) and Google to get an idea of how how it works… Want to get your colleagues together in an inclusive way? Our company ukulele workshops can include everyone. You’ll work together to play a song or 3. Best of all you’ll have a really good laugh along the way!
WHAT HAPPENS AT A COMPANY UKULELE WORKSHOP?
We come along with 30-100 ukuleles, and have you and your colleagues or friends play a song within an hour for the ‘power hour’ or you can have 2 hours including a break and learn 1-3 songs.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It depends on how you want it to work! Do you want to get people to work together who haven’t previously? Is it for a conference ice-breaker? Ukulele is good for morning, lunchtime, or Friday afternoon ice breakers. We can incorporate competitions games to make you work as a team, or if you’re already familiar with each other, you can learn a few songs in groups and compete with each other, or give a live performance to or make a music video for other people within or out of your company. If you want a memento of the day, we can film it for you. If you want to buy ukuleles to present to your staff, we can source these and tune them up for you in advance of the workshop.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
You choose. You can learn 1 song in an hour, or go for 2-3 songs over 2 hours (with a half time break). You could have a half or full day of ukulele if you want to learn a lot in a crash course.
WHAT DO WE NEED?
A projector, a screen, and enough chairs to seat everyone who’s coming. If you need help with a central London venue, we can help. Just let us know.
WE NORMALLY GO ON AN AWAY DAY OR WE DO A SPORTS ACTIVITY. WHY SHOULD WE USE UKULELES AS A TEAM BUILDING EXERCISE?
We’ll work you hard. You can battle it out in teams against one another, or have groups playing together. You’ll have to listen to each other and work together to make music. The ukulele is easier than most instruments to play, you will make music in an hour. We encourage you to sing together too. (Don’t worry, we can’t sing either!) The whole effect will leave your staff smiling, laughing and singing or at the very least humming. Literally everyone can get involved!
WE’D LIKE TO USE IT AS PART OF THE OFFICE PARTY, GET OUR TEAM PLAYING, AND MAKE A MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE REST OF THE COMPANY.
This is definitely possible! Contact us here and we can work something out with you.
