THERAPEUTIC DRUMMING



THERAPEUTIC DRUMMING

Communal drumming has been clinically proven to provide a wide range of health benefits and therapeutic applications for people of all ages with physical or mental challenges, or for healthy people who want to stay that way.


Tim has the personality to work with seniors and not many have that! The fact that he had all the residents involved and engaged was a great thing, and to see so many of them really enjoy it. It was awesome. I’d love to have him back!

It was fantastic how Tim interacted with the residents and family members who attended. I could tell they were having a great by their smiles and how they would sing along. It was evident the profound impact of music as a therapeutic tool. I personally even enjoyed being a part of the circle.”
