This presentation enables educators, recreation directors, eldercare providers, healthcare and disabilities professionals, social workers, and other service providers to be the leaders of song-based, interactive drumming activities for their consumers. No prior drumming experience is required. Drums are provided for the session. Participants receive a handout with “BB’s Common Household Rhythms”.

He conveys ideas and methods that enable educators and professional providers to lead interdisciplinary, music-making activities in their classroom, special needs, healthcare, and social work settings.”
