The physical and psychological benefits of singing have long been acknowledged.
More recently, studies have shown the benefits of group singing in helping to develop fast-forming bonds. The act of singing together engenders a sense of belonging, forges friendships and a greater grasp of a shared purpose quicker than any other non-musical group activity.
Bearing this in mind, Frielance Music has developed a choir program for businesses with various iterations to complement your team-building needs.
This program focuses on the team singing together as one. Although there may be individuals with particular talents who shine through in this activity, the group as a whole benefits by working closely together.
Beginning with vocal warm-ups and exercises to help the group relax, we then develop this into slightly more complex exercises that help the team to work together. Everybody has to play their part or the whole piece doesn't work effectively.
We then move on to singing familiar popular songs and helping to build the confidence of the group. The familiarity and repetition of words and musical phrases here is a useful framing device for improvisation and experimentation. Are you willing to take a chance and rise to the challenge?
The team is given several songs to choose from as their final "Performance Piece" for the day. They decide as a team which song to perform and work begins on learning and developing their performance.
The program concludes with the team performance and reflection on the day's activities.
This program can also be carried out over a four week period as an "Office Choir" session happening once a week for an hour and a half duration. Contact us to discuss your bespoke requirements.
"CREATIVE CHOIR" (office choir with a twist!)
We'll turn your team into a Songwriting Choir!
Total Duration: 5 hours (variations based on specific package)
Number of Participants: 10-50
- Collaborating as part of a team
- Creative thinking to solve unfamiliar problems
- Reinforcing Corporate Identity/Brand ethos
- Create familiarity with new products or services
- Confidence building in an unfamiliar environment
- Freedom to take risks within an organised structure
- Working to achieve results within an extremely limited time frame
- Individual talents can shine within a group structure and benefit the team as a whole
This is a more creative approach to the "Office Choir". In addition to the exercises and warm-ups of the "Office Choir",in this program the participants are asked to work together to write lyrics to the song that they are going to perform together. This is a great way to help establish familiarity with a new product or service in your company. The words and phrases that the participants are asked to include can be pre-selected to suit your team-building requirements.
Perhaps you wish to re-establish your corporate identity and company's mission statement amongst your workforce? What better way than to get your team to write about it and then sing together?
The structure of the program is the same as the "OFFICE CHOIR" with additional time given to writing lyrics for the featured song.
The day concludes with team performance and reflection on the day's activities.
