Our workshops combine musical performance, interactive exercises, and open dialogue to form an experiential learning environment for the cultivation of skills necessary for success in today’s business environment.
We utilize a dynamic musical performance practice called “open-ended improvisation” in which music is created spontaneously, with little or no preconceived direction. No previous musical experience is required, just an open mind and a willingness to try anything!
While many other creativity-based workshops use lectures and role-play to simply transmit information, we place participants in improvisational situations that prompt them to experiment in an environment that is both genuine and immediate.
Engaging in this process of group improvisation allows participants to work with skills that have many applications beyond the music itself. Just a few of these skills are:
- Divergent thinking
- Managing conflicts in a collaborative environment
- Internalizing and managing complexity
- Tolerating ambiguity, and multiple right answers
We work closely with clients to develop an experience best suited to your needs. Leading up to any presentation, we will be in close contact regarding topics and format, as well as any learning objectives specific to your organization that you wish for us to incorporate.
We take pride in the fact that our understanding of creativity, collaboration, and music is the result of a continuing process of discovery and refinement. This means both building a knowledge-base around theories of organization and creativity, as well as honing our musical skills through hours of daily practice and performance.
