The Voice of the Team
Your Drum Voice: By Shayne Simpson
A five minute talk on drumming is given to specifically address the ‘Drum Voice’….’Your Voice’ in the work place. A direct correlation may be drawn to the work place.
The voice of the drum = Our own voice in the workplace.
Listening Skills: Listening to oneself, as well as the other drums = Listening to how one speaks to other people in the workplace. Am I loud, or is my voice not heard at all. Do I talk over other people? (Playing to loud). Do I listen to other people’s ideas or suggestions? (Concentrating and listening to other people playing).
Working Together: The importance of working together, as a team to build the rhythm, create music together, sense of unity, direction, purpose and has a musical flow. Drums playing in harmony together, is like a choir singing together. Not working together or not playing together creates noise, chaos and is unmusical. Working together, as a team in the workplace facilitates and drives people towards achieving their targets and goals. This combined sense of unity, has a positive flow and rhythm to embrace your everyday tasks with enthusiasm resulting in success.
Rhythm: Many people tell me I have no rhythm or I can’t play drums. I tell them “If your heart beats, then you have rhythm within you’. People fail themselves before they even try. It’s ok to make a mistake or not play correctly. Everyone makes mistakes from time to time, but I have a whole team to help me hold the rhythm and keep things flowing. In the workplace people say I can’t do this or can’t do that, failing them-selves even before trying. If I make a mistake, I have a team to help support me, correct my mistakes and get me back on track.
Fun: This is going to be fun and I want people to enjoy them-selves. It is not a test. Let’s play together and everyone gets to enjoy and experience the ‘Magic of Drumming.
