Human
Rhythms

Teamwork and excitement.

Profile

Wow your team with an interactive performance using Drums, musical tubes and percussion instruments. Your group will feel entirely exhilarated after creating a musical masterpiece under the guidance of our Professional Drummer, who doesn’t speak throughout the entire tuition!

When it comes to sheer impact there are few groups to rival Human Rhythms - they combine surprise, fun, emotion and an instant sense of teamwork and camaraderie.

Their performance commences with a strident musical introduction from the Human Rhythms team. Enthusiasm engulfs a surprised audience, who are introduced to drums, their means of expression for the duration of the experience.

Rhythmic contributions start rolling in from the delegates until everyone in the room is drawn into the cacophony of sounds. At this point, the Human Rhythms facilitators guide everyone through a series of simple beats and exercises turning 200 individuals into one orchestrated group. Groups are formed, tempo and volume are changed all under the expert direction of the Human Rhythms team.

The delegates become performers rather than spectators and they learn the importance of a team and its reliance on the individual.

At the conclusion of what is called the drum circle, delegates leave the room smiling and joking with one another, feeling elated, uplifted and ready for success.

It's a remarkable experience with remarkable effects on team spirit!

Feedback
It's hard to imagine that two people can guide three hundred people through a series of simple beats without any verbal communication. The synergy in the room was unbelievable. The feedback from our managers: 'When can we do it again?' Thanks again for assisting us in demonstrating the power of synergy. McDonald's
