Making music is about teamwork. The quality of the musicians is important but secondary to the cooperation within the group. Just like a company, it comes down to teamwork, communication, trust and leadership. The smallest mistake is disastrous for the listening audience (the customer). Rhythm is the basis here, the universal language for all musicians. The drummer is therefore often a team member, leader and communicator in one.
The participants in this workshop did not know each other. Three remarkable things happened by making music together:
1. within minutes, the individuals formed a group with visible cooperation, leaders and followers
2. the participants experienced how they became dependent on each other's functioning
3. everyone had to oversee the whole in order to play their own part in the music
