Economic analysts projected that a Pennsylvania corporation saved $89,100 in costs associated with training new hires by using drumming to improve morale. That’s a return on investment of $60.57 saved for every dollar invested.

Having truly motivated people is a very powerful thing -­ absenteeism goes down, productivity goes up, people get along better, and it makes your organization a more exciting place to be.Unfortunately, finding ways to keep “​the troops”​motivated can be difficult, especially when many team ­building activities have passed the “new and fun stage” and moved right into the “boring and tired stage.”

Are you ready to make some noise?

However, there is a team­ building activity that is still fresh, and exciting, and wildly entertaining… and that activity is DRUMMING!

That’s right, the simple act of having people gather in a circle and bang out a beat can be tremendously uniting, motivating, and downright fun.

I should know, my name is Mike Veny, and I’m a Drum Circle Facilitator.

I’ve witnessed the effect a drum circle can have. I’ve seen the smiles, and the laughter, and I’ve felt the feelings of kinship and excitement that arose among the participants.

  • Rhythm -­ E​veryone has their own unique sense of rhythm.
  • Relationships ­- Y​ou can sit next to someone you don’t know really well and connect with them.
  • Responsibility ­- E​very single person has an important role in the drum circle.
  • Respite -­ E​veryone needs to take a break and H​AVE SOME FUN!

And now I want to help YOU experience these same benefits at YOUR organization.
