Fun, Online, incredibly Easy Musical Team Building
Get your team singing from the same song sheet (literally!) with our fun, online team building sessions.
No prior musical knowledge or experience is necessary for the Learn to Uke team building experience, and even the most unmusical amongst you will have a ball creating your masterpiece!
The Ukulele won the Guinness World Record for being the easiest instrument to learn and play – and in just ONE HOUR we’ll have your whole team joining in and loving it.
Make a video, test your musical mettle with an in-house Battle of the Bands, create a multi-site wellness initiative with regular sessions; the possibilities are endless.
Whether you want 90 minutes, 2 hours, half or full day sessions, we can tailor everything to your own requirements, including or excluding different elements to suit.
To really maximise the feel-good factor and get those endorphins flowing, we encourage a good singalong too – and if you need a spot of Dutch courage for that, you may even want to bring your own tipple!
Whatever your team dynamic, we have a fun Uke option to really pull your people together.
In-person sessions are also available at your chosen venue – travel costs will apply.
It’s a Hawaiian instrument. It looks like a small guitar but it has 4 strings. Ukuleles are VERY easy to play – they won a Guinness World Record for being the easiest to learn. People often see it as a gateway instrument, to prepare you for larger fretted stringed instruments, but they are so easy and fun that it's very addictive, so you’ll probably stick with it.
It’s easy to learn which makes it fun. It’s portable and it’s a social instrument. It’s so small it’s not intimidating and it’s a great leveller.
People have cottoned on to the fact that it’s easy, fun, social and portable. We do wish they’d stop using them in so many twee adverts, though!
About ONLINE TEAM BUILDING
Pretty much everyone can join in. Absolutely no prior musical experience is necessary. It is, by design, the musical equivalent of ‘paint by numbers’ and everybody is welcome. We'll add everything you need to add musical fun to any event. Whether you have 5 or 30 (or even 100) people, we’ll have you singing and/or playing a popular song or three. You’ll all start from scratch so it’s a great leveller.
It works best with 5-30 ukuleles. You and your colleagues will play a song within an hour for the ‘power hour’ or you can have a 2-hour session (90-minutes, including a break) and learn 2-5 songs.
That is down to you. Let us know how much time you have (from 1-hour minimum right up to a full day), whether you want a one-off or a regular class, what kind of activity you want, depending whether you are looking for an ice-breaker, team building session or an ongoing workplace wellness initiative. Whether you want to learn 1-song, 2-5 songs, incorporate musical games, have a battle of the bands, music video songwriting, themed/tailored songs – these are all things we have done and we can happily tailor to your event if you let us know what you need.
Yes, you’ll need;
A ukulele, a tuning device and screen with a camera and mic for each participant. Ideally, we'll need a decent internet connection, a sense of fun, and an (optional, medicinal) tipple.
Ukulele is good for morning, lunchtime, after work, as an ice breaker to break up a day or as a warm-up before your company party.
Some suggested options to fill specific time slots:
- 1-hour, perhaps a lunch hour to simply get you all playing 1 song
- 2-hours (90-minutes with a break in the middle) to play 2-5 songs
- half or full day, have inter-team X-factor style competition, play fun musical games to make you work as a team, or give a live performance to others, write a song.
It starts at £570 for a team of 10 for an hour. Above 15 people, as a rule of thumb, allow roughly £38 per person for anything up to 30 people. The price per head decreases if you are either; a small registered charity, you have a very large team, or if you want an ongoing series of sessions rather than just a one-off.
When we learn to swim, the first width is always hardest, and the subsequent lengths get progressively easier. It's the same with ukulele. Most energy is used at the beginning, so if you wanted to book a series, the subsequent sessions will cost less.
If you want to have a memento of the event, we can help with filming/editing group videos for you to keep.
If you want to buy ukuleles to give to your staff to keep, we would source and tune them up for you in advance of the workshop, then everyone can play them again, perhaps for an ongoing workplace wellness initiative. (It’ll take around a week to get the strings to settle down.)
