“Tocá Rufar’s performance at the closing ceremony of our global human resources meeting was one of the best moments of the day. As a group of young musicians, they reveled coordination and professionalism adults don’t always do. Moreover, the drumming exercise they proposed us gathered 50 people who worked together and played coordinately and melodically. Congratulations to the maestro, for that was no easy task!
As a client, I find Tocá Rufar’s teambuilding a fantastic exercise to show that with good leadership, and by listening to one another, team work can be great.
As a participant, I loved the power of music and the opportunity to, in a short period, be able to play such a powerful instrument.

"In the last years, Tocá Rufar has been one of ATEC’s preferred partners for events and teambuildings., providing impactful and memorable moments to all participants.
If I had to resume Tocá Rufar’s service into three words, I’d say proffessional, flexible and memorable.
Professional in their approach, provision and relationship – from the maestro to the orchestra!
Flexible on the design and delivery of the programme, always attentive to customer’s needs and ready to come up with solutions.
Memorable, because drums are an impactful organisational metaphor, involving participants from begining to end and allowing, through experience, the creation of organic and deep learning.
A big drum roll to Tocá Rufar! Let the drums never be shut."

"I really enjoyed Tocá Rufar’s teambuilding and I think that it filled its purpose completely. I believe that is was one of the most interesting acitivities I ever tried on a teambuilding.
I would like to thank you for letting us participate in such an exciting activity. From my point of view, the instructors involved in the project did a flawless job: they were patient, attentive and professional. Furthermore, the activity itself gave me the opportunity of connecting with other colleagues as a whole team. For this reason, I was delighted to take part in this activity.
As regards to the feedback about the teambuilding activity through drumming, I will say it is highly positive. It was really fun, collaborative and instructive. I enjoyed a lot! Loved it”

"I would like to give you a feedback of the event, it was a hit! Feedback from all our collaborators who participated in the event was excellent, they were all really excited about the activity.
It all went through very well at every level, from the timings that made this teambuilding session very fluid, monitor’s excellent interaction with the attendees, their flexibility in adapting to our needs (room to unload/load instruments, choice of venue for the action itself, everything). We all agreed on that, and we still speak about it at office J!
A very special thank you to the monitors who were with us, they were exceptional!"
"We thank Tocá Rufar’s availabilty on facilitating a percussion workshop to Colégio Valsassina.
We invited Tocá Rufar to offer our collaborators – scholars, management team and administration – an unique experience before our Christmas dinner.
The activities started with an hour long workshop where team spirit, synchronicity and rhythm gave motive to new learnign opportunities.
We were 30 volunteers form different ages, proffessions, and personalitites. For the next 2 hours we played as a single orchestra.
We believe music is an excellent tool for non verbal communication, to which Tocá Rufar is one of the most distinguishing Portuguese representatives.
After the workshop, under Flávios Santos’ mastery we were able to perform and show our learnings to our more than 150 colleagues.
Throughout those 20 minutes we experienced fascinating moments of rhythmic harmony.
Among the audience the impression was unanimous: bravo! Within participants joy was unstopable. An experience difinately worth repeating!
We are ever so thankful for Flávio’s availability, willingness and professionalism. We are looking forward to sharing knowledge with Tocá Rufar in future opportunities.
On behalf of Colégio Vasassina, our most sincere gratitude."
