PSRS TEAMBUILDING

FOSTERING COLLABORATION THROUGH SONGWRITING AND PERFORMANCE

With over ten years of experience developing band programs in both Paris and Brooklyn, we are excited to apply our unique PSRS approach of collaborative learning to the team building industry. Collaboration, risk-taking and creation are at the core of the PSRS ethos and these qualities shine brightest during both the songwriting process and the on-stage experience. Creating a positive and exciting environment where people can feel comfortable sharing ideas is paramount when asking people to work together on a project and it's one of the things we do best at PSRS.

We host our sessions at our central Paris location at Basement Studios in the 9eme Arr. which consists of individual rehearsal rooms and a large performance space. All equipment (instruments, sono, amplification) is provided in-house. While we use English as often as possible in our instruction, all of our PSRS Band Coaches are bilingual and can conduct the sessions in French if necessary.

Designed for small to mid-sized groups (5-50 people), and tailor made to adapt to your business’ needs and goals, the PSRS team building session is sure to provide your community with a memorable, dynamic and fun experience.


If you want a hands on activity that will unite your group, spark creativity, and put everyone out of their comfort zone only to build a more solid foundation, look no further and get ready to rock!

HOW IT WORKS

o.jpg

Your team will be broken up into "rock bands” of 5-10 people, each guided by a PSRS Band Coach. The instrument setup is the same as a real rock band: guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, vocals and percussion. The songwriting session starts with a brief lesson from our Band Coach, explaining the different parts of a song and their importance (verse, chorus, bridge), accompanied by listening examples. Then it’s down to business: writing an original song (music and lyrics) based on a theme chosen by your business or by the band itself. NOTE: Lyrics will be primarily in English though we are happy to incorporate French lyrics as well. Once the song is finished, it’s on to the stage. The afternoon culminates in a rock show (in a classic Parisian cave club) where all the bands perform their new hit songs for the rest of the team. Not your average “group presentation!”


 

SESSION BREAKDOWN

Welcome

Held on stage in the large performance room, PSRS Founder Jason Domnarski welcomes you with a brief description of who we are, what we do, and the plan for the days events. (20 minutes)

Songwriting

The team will be broken up into bands (either by you or randomly by Jason) and will be assigned their own PSRS Band Coach. Each band will then move to their rehearsal room for the songwriting session. (2-3 hours).

Concert

Bands will reconvene in the performance venue for a performance for the entire community (45 min-1 hour)

There were hysterical fits of laughter, insanely goofy faces, spontaneous bursts of lyrical brilliance, a killer guitar solo that appeared out of nowhere, a chorus worthy of a Quincy Jones Billboard hit, and in the end we had ourselves a damn awesome original tune that is now our team’s anthem.

 

PRICING AND  CUSTOMIZATIONS

Every business is different and every team is unique. We are happy to work with you to customize our session to your needs. Team size, time frame, specific themes…all is open to discussion.
