How It’s Done

We have developed a sure-fire way of teaching music to any level of learner – and it is through this system that will see participants be able to successfully traverse their musical journey. There will be sectionals where they will first learn, and then consequently rehearse in smaller units before coming together at the end to play as one huge band.

  • No Musical Background Required

Participants will leave with new skills that are directly transferable usable in everyday life.

The In-sync team bonding experience we had was amazing. They really successfully facilitated our team, with majority of us not having prior music training, to play in a band and sound good! It is definitely worth a shot for those who are looking to have their team bonding done in a pleasantly unique manner.
