TEam building programs

Crash Rhythm's Team Building Program has elements of engaging performance, personal reflection, teamwork and leadership.  Percussionist Hilary Whiskin is a presenter whose enthusiasm and passion is contagious.  Her ability to motivate and engage audiences from young to old has led to the rapid growth of CRASH. Participants of the team building program will:

  • Enjoy a professional percussion performance
  • Evaluate how their role within the company parallels the contribution of each instrument in a dynamic orchestral performance
  • Learn basic percussion rudiments with their own "sticks and drum pad/bucket"
  • Create a composition with a small group of their work colleagues
  • Perform and conduct their composition for the larger team

Through these aspects of the workshop, new skills are learned together in creating a final "product".  A copy of the group's overall composition is produced for framing in the office with the title of the piece chosen by the participants.  A great memory of the teamwork generated during the workshop to be carried forth into the workplace.

Sessions can be modified for any number of participants and can range in length to accommodate the needs of the group. CRASH can come to the office for an afterwork or lunch session or be part of an offsite retreat or conference or new product launch meeting. Each corporation's mission statement and values are INCORPORATED into the presentation.
