Stix Music education programs facilitate creativity & empowerment experiences for both adults and children alike. From developing innovative thinking and networking among adults to providing fun, interactive experiences that get children engaged with education.
Integrating Creative and Analytical Learning
Effective learning experiences which fuse both analytical and creative skills are the key to a holistic and inclusive experience in education. Both skills can only be developed through active participation and experiential education. Stix Music programs deliver this in a fun, engaging and positive way with Bambajam, Stix jam sessions and more.
As a professional musician, educator and public speaker, Duncan’s approach, method, games & simulations were designed as a tool for education. He has managed to use music to help team development. These teams are not always from Fortune 100 companies, but they can be from the future leaders of top organizations as well.
His learning programs are the only ones of their kind and can be customized for your group or organization. Contact Duncan personally to book your group.

How do we get children engaged in education?
It starts with creating an environment for self discovery. When students take ownership of their own achievements, those achievements then become skills. Duncan’s programs combine cognitive and affective learning to develop important life skills, confidence to create and peer-to-peer coaching. His structured processes are self-directed and collaborative providing a framework for students to work together and grow together.
We are also in the midst of launching a very exciting eco-friendly musical resource that builds inclusivity in music education whilst teaching and exploring affective skills. If you would like to find out more, you can drop us a note here, and we will put you on the mailing list. Topics addressed:
Team building Programs for Schools
Youth Leadership Experiences with Music
Music Resources for Teachers
Green & CSR Programs for Schools
Eco-Friendly Music Development Tools
Bambajam is an eco-friendly music education program that supports emotional intelligence and coaching skills for children. Music is our collective language and we believe these skills should be developed first, giving students the necessary communication skills to play music in groups.
Our process guides students through theory in an active environment. Students learn to read music, develop active listening techniques, discover musical dynamics, create harmony and build leadership skills.

Here’s What to Expect for Your Even
Thanks again for an outstanding performance yesterday. It was just brilliant. You are really lucky being able to have a career in something that you clearly love doing – and it shows in the quality of the work that you do.
Stix was a revelation – everything that we hoped for happened … high energy, motivation, teambuilding, dynamism, no cultural boundary and fun – everyone enjoyed the STIX experience so much that it was voted the top session at the conference.
I have worked with Duncan on numerous occasions to support large scale leadership development events. He brings a unique energy to the way he engages with the audience to provide a leadership and team experience out of the ordinary. His natural passion for music comes across clearly as he translates this into his work.
The session was excellent and will be remembered for a long time. You brought the energy of our team to a different level. We all enjoyed it. Well done and thank you again!!
We engaged Duncan and his stix programme to help build conversations within our group. We were looking for a unique way to improve the team’s performance and build on communication. The result was a fully-engaging and insightful meeting that shifted our perceptions of what was achievable. Duncan challenged our ideas of leadership and teamwork, and we could not have predicted such positive results.
