Our New Venture! BUILD AN ORCHESTRA IN THE WORKPLACE!

With all their experience WhistleBlast are adding a NEW venture  called Music in the Workplace! The Irish Times  published this article in February, "Who wants to play music at work?" about this new and exciting project. Creating music is an obvious activity to bring people together for enjoyment and team building. It also helps with order, discipline, group logistics, emotional expression and much more. These qualities all help to strengthen the workforce and at the same time provide relaxing entertainment. WhistleBlast can provide any organisation with the instruments and personalised tools to create an ORCHESTRA and CHOIR to facilitate any group of adults with or without musical experience. CONTACT US NOW. Motivate your workforce with this brilliant programme!

Thank you so much! I loved today’s performance - it was beautiful to hear live music and I learned so much. It was really good fun and relaxed and I loved watching my children really get involved and captured in the music!

Fantastic! Excellent mix of education and entertainment very well pitched (no pun intended!) at young children. Thank you.
