The Game
Learn to play the blues harmonica in just two hours! The fun begins when you receive your own harmonica and blues harmonica songbook. Within minutes, you’ll be playing a real blues song along with your team. The grand finale features your team as the stars: perform an original blues song that you create and even bring home a video of your inspired performance!

Designed by Quixote Consulting founder Rob Fletcher (author of Blues Harmonica for Beginners), Play the Blues Harmonica Music Team Building  is specifically designed for music-related team play and for people to achieve something fast that they never even thought possible.

Quixote Consulting’s fun and friendly instruction teaches everything you need to know to get started playing the blues. Play the Blues Harmonica music team building activity guides you all the way to playing with a classic blues sound. And it’s not just the blues. You’ll learn how to play many popular songs such as “Love Me Do”, “Piano Man”, “Feelin’ Alright”, “Jambalaya”, “Rawhide”, “These Boots Are Made For Walking” and many more. You’ll find out how to imitate a train, play with a blues rhythm, blow single notes and more. Learn the secret of bending notes for that bluesy sound, vibrato, vocal effects, the warble and more.

Does this sound like your team? Everyone has a clearly defined role, an expertise and passion for that role, and the sum of the whole is greater than the parts. There’s a clearly defined goal that is adaptable enough to address the realities of the moment, a common rhythm, an extraordinary amount of listening, responding and interplay that’s all in the service of a tangible, customer-focused final product. That’s what a great band does and it helps teams to connect the metaphor of playing music together and working productively together in the work place.
In the debrief at the end of the program, people talk about improving their listening, communication and creativity skills. They like getting to know each other in a different way and especially love discovering the hidden talents in their group. But the two words that come up most often are ‘memorable’ and ‘fun’.

Play the Blues Harmonica music team building is an excellent way to bring co-workers together and to connect passion, confidence and fun back to the workplace.

And yes, we’ll bring the Blues Brothers hats and sunglasses!
