Team Building Drumming

When we drum together, we work as a team ONE beat at a time!

Making music requires Teamwork.

You can tell a GREAT team by the quality of music they produce!


Afrobeat’s team building drumming delivers an unforgettable impact.

No one can resist the invitation of the drum. To the delight and surprise of your team, EVERYONE is invited to take up an African drum of their own and join in.

Within minutes, Afrobeat have everyone beating out rhythms of unity, creating musical harmony and an outstanding theatrical performance! With every beat, enthusiasm and excitement build as participants begin to sense the power of their individual rhythmic contributions! Before they know it, the unsuspecting group have become performers rather than spectators and the group dynamic and team spirit begin to emerge.

The #1 Team Building Activity to beat all others!

When looking for team building ideas, African Drumming is probably NOT the first thing that comes to mind! But you might be surprised to learn that Group Drumming has evolved as one of the most popular team building activities of all time!

Interactive Drumming is recognised as a cutting-edge tool for building teams and has gained surprising momentum as people realise its limitless applications and benefits, flexibility to resonate with diverse audiences and contexts, and its successful applications in the workplace, community, and organisations.


And is it any wonder, when 'Drumming together' is simple, fun, accessible, and effective?


Afrobeat’s team building drumming enables teams to learn together, develop teamwork and create momentum for sustainable organisational change. A natural organiser and energiser, rhythm and music-making provide powerful metaphors for teamwork that result in group synergy, a shared purpose, and a common goal.

Because ‘drumming together’ requires the input of ALL team members to produce music, it highlights the interdependence of the team along with the importance of diversity within the team for its success.

Afrobeat creates an atmosphere of fun, success, and being part of something special while participants learn the art of working together without words, building dynamic sounds and rhythmic layers traditional to African Music. The experience of drumming together helps remove social barriers in a non-intimidating, and fun atmosphere. Participants relax, gain enthusiasm and the necessary confidence to fully participate in other group activities.

What others are saying...

Moorabool Shire Council

It was more powerful than a discussion around teamwork! It was the perfect activity after lunch as it lifted our energy levels so we could move into our planning session.

Cardinia Shire Council

Facilitators were very professional, friendly and encouraging. We thoroughly enjoyed the Team Building event, we all had a great time and got to try something most of us had not tried before. Was surprised at how much everyone enjoyed and participated.

National Australia Bank (NAB)

We had a great time and Janine’s messaging really hit the mark. We had a fun time together and what a great reflection of real life! i.e. we’re all different (the coloured groove tubes made different tunes) but once we paced ourselves and understand what parts we play, what a rhythm we create!! The more…

Moorabool Shire Council

“What I thought was really exciting about Afrobeat was their ability to get ALL of our team members involved in the activity. We were thrilled to see new skills emerge within individuals in our group. It was a wonderful experience to see the progress from a cacophony of sounds at the beginning of the session…

Team Building Drumming – Cottage By the Sea

A great way to start the day before our meeting!  A lot of fun and a great euphemism for our corporate journey and aspirations to be a harmonious work place.  This was a creative, fun approach towards team building and unity. Thank-you!

Team Building Drumming with BP

Nothing but great experiences dealing with all staff. Afrobeat were excellent – they have obviously done this for years & clearly love the experience with every new group – like the pied piper – quite fascinating to watch Janine do her magic. I thought it would be fun, but the experience was so much better…
