Our cities, towns and schools MUST have Arts organizations that are vital AND viable partners in our communities. These organizations feed the dreams and hopes of our young and assist in lifting up those most in need of encouragement. These groups often become the incubators for tomorrow’s innovation leaders and problem solvers as well. Therefore, if you decide to hire us – to assist in enhancing your event, We would like to partner with you and a local school or arts program. There are multiple ways this can be done:
Instruments for kids – We can obtain an instrument wish list and raise funds to purchase instruments at the event OR organize an instrument drive.
1-1 Community Development – You can choose (or we can) a partner literacy or arts non-profit in the city in which your event is being held. We will donate a team-building program to the leadership team of that organization in your name! We will make all arrangements with the organization and make sure to be clear that this is donated on behalf of your organization.
The option to look “outward” for musical team building topic matter, and write a song for and with a local non-profit partner. A song that’s about about them is an exciting addition to our offerings. In recent years some of our clients, have expressed the desire to NOT write about themselves during their program, but rather, to partner with a non-profit of their choice to raise awareness and possibly even funds as part of their Social Responsibility mission. A part of this process can be having your audience, combine part of their conference session with representatives from your partner non-profit, and write THEIR story/song together.
The beautiful outcomes that can occur from these private, public type partnerships are many. Your company will feel great in having helped out a local organization with professional development, fund-raising, donating instruments even. If we put our heads together, we can create a meaningful program that will touch in all of your key takeaways and pain points for this particular conference, AND touch on your non-profit partners’ mission and needs.
Our “Songwriter in Chief’s” NEW CD – 7 Days – Purchase a copy of this CD for a minimum of 20 members of your leadership team, OR for all event attendees. Jeff will donate 50% of that entire purchase back to the non-profit of your choice…once again in your name.
By bringing us on board to facilitate a team building event, you’ll contribute to the success of a worthy, LOCAL organization.
Collaboration for the GOOD
What a fun way to start off the week! Thank you for your thoughtfulness and for leading a session at the conference that was truly unique and which engaged our creativity.
Heather Perdue, M.A., CFRE The Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University
Jeff and his team gave us exercises that allowed for critical team development. One of Jeff’s most valuable assets is his ability to empower others using songwriting as a tool. Our group was so lucky to spend an afternoon with Jeff and Michael.
Jamie Amaral, Senior Director Marketing & Sales – OIA, Inc.
Jeff’s process was fast-paced, fun and educational. It was highly interactive and it most certainly brought out the creative spirit in everyone. It was unlike any other team-building exercise that I’ve encountered. I would encourage any group wanting a unique and meaningful team-building experience to work with Jeff. It is time well spent.

Who knew that play-doh and music would go together! Outpatient Imaging Affiliates had a wonderful, fun time and we all learned how to work as a group and be creative. Thank you Jeff for helping us learn more about each other’s strengths and how to maximize them.
