The Hong Kong office of leading global conservation organisation, WWF took part in our low carbon emission and completely reusable BeatsWork musical extravaganza programme at the Music Farm in Hong Kong.
With over one hundred participants this truly was teambuilding on a grand musical scale! The group was split into smaller teams of around forty participants and lead through a series of practice rhythms using clapping tapping and movement. This brought home that even if you think you don’t have a rhythm, that will enough practice and the support of the team you will get there successfully.
Next came the learning and practice will real instruments of big drums, tamborims, tambourines, agogo bells, cowbells, shakers and maracas. The team learned the different layers of rhythms as one team and then split into their musical groups to practice and make perfect their specific beat.
Once the musical groups had got their piece perfect the teams of different instruments came back together and our team of musical facilitators led them through the paces of silent breaks, five beat breaks, vocal breaks, solo breaks and the rumba!
Finally the entire organisation regrouped and transformed into a giant samba rhythm band where the pounding of music was energising, engaging and inspiring. Far from making fragmented noises, WWF had a cohesive explosive musical extravaganza!
Best of all the instruments are completely reusable, so no wastage or recycling needs to take place.
“BeatsWork was a truly inspirational experience that brought the team together to celebrate all that is great when teams work and play together, in this case, great team music!”Eric Bohm, CEO, WWF - Hong Kong WWF
