Igniting Communication is a New York-based business consulting company offering a fresh approach to team building. Using the intrinsic appeal of music, we help organizations motivate their employees, enable creative thinking and develop more productive teams.

Through our lively, interactive programs, participants discover how to collaborate with each other in new ways. Team members improve their problem solving skills while learning to work together more effectively. The experiences they share will stay with them long after the program is over.

Drawing upon our backgrounds in business communication, psychology and music, we guide clients through basic songwriting and music making exercises. Participants brainstorm ideas together, work under deadline pressure and produce a measurable end result: a song.
