Playing music can have a very positive effect on young people. High-quality instruments are needed by teens in youth organizations and by schools with underfunded music programs. Build-a-Band™ was created to serve this need. These instrument kits were custom-designed for BEST – complete with instruction manuals – to provide a unique and exciting company event.

This CSR event starts by forming your group into teams (Bands) who pick a team leader (Lead Singer) and engage in our fun, fast-paced, team competition called BrainStorm.

BrainStorm features team questions, photo activities, and timed video challenges that enable teams to earn the parts necessary to assemble the guitars, bass guitars, and drum sets. Throughout the Brainstorm program, participants will be capturing photos and videos of each other in action.

As teams gain points through BrainStorm challenges, they will be rewarded with trips to our music store to obtain the parts needed for the assembly. Our expert facilitators (Roadies) will do periodic inspections will ensure the guitars, bass guitars, and drum sets are built to precise specifications.

Our guitar kits also include a tuner, audio cable, guitar strap, picks, and even a personal amplifier! Depending upon the allotted time, each team can create a band name, design a drum head with a band logo, create a concert poster, and decorate a special white guitar box to reflect the unique personality of their band.

Once all the instruments are built, don’t be surprised if a spontaneous jam session and photo opportunity break out. So, let’s get rolling and build some band instruments for future musicians of America, who will never forget your wonderful gift to their school or organization. At the conclusion of the program, a local charity or school representative may address your group and thank you for your donation.

To ensure the success of the experience, aspects of this event may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.

Clients Talk About this Program

Best Corporate Events has done it again!   This time, providing a hugely successful Build a Band Challenge, which took place in our host city of Nashville!  Our attendees took part in trivia challenges and were able to build their own band of teammates producing some very creative guitar cases along with working guitars and a drum set!   Not to be forgotten was their talent while forming their very own bands with unique names and a few out-of-the-box iPad performances!   All was accomplished with the help of a great BEST staff led by Indy Tapar, who was a true professional and a joy to work with. The experience was first rate and capping it off by actually donating the instruments to children took the entire event to a grander level. A truly enjoyable and worthwhile event!

When we contacted our national charitable organizations about what instruments they needed the most for their music programs (other than the guitars that are built and donated through our Build-a-Guitar), they said bass guitars and drums! That was the inspiration for Build-a-Band!

The key was the guitars. You can’t build a guitar in an hour because they need to be sanded, stained, coated and then assembled, which takes a whole day and involves gluing necks, drilling holes, and soldering connections.

So, we hired a top guitar company to build us a guitar kit from scratch that could be assembled in an hour without all the steps mentioned above. We then designed our own Instruction booklets.

The guitars are excellent quality; one-of-a-kind kits build exclusively for Best Corporate Events and they sound great! We had a bass guitar kit made and developed an easy-to-understand instruction book for that instrument too, and added a drum set kit to create Build-a-Band!

      What is a Keynote Speaker?

      Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

      Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

      In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

      As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
