Our Drumbeat program incorporates hand drumming along with discussion to help students to regulate their emotions; to engage students reluctant to share their feelings; and to help them reconnect with themselves and others.

The name DRUMBEAT is an acronym for Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes and Thoughts.

The program is structured over 10 one hour sessions, incorporating hand drumming. This is achieved using a combination of five elements:

  • Core Rhythms
  • Rhythms Games
  • Discussion
  • Improvisation
  • Performance
