Drumbeat stands for Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Attitudes and Thoughts.

DRUMBEAT is an evidence based therapeutic social emotional learning program with a focus on building resilience through rhythm and developing engaging relationships with students. The aim of the DRUMBEAT program is for students to:

  • Gain coping strategies to self-regulate, manage emotions and behaviour (with the aim of fewer disruptions in class and more time to focus on learning)
  • Learn collaborative skills to engage in class activities for a more positive and cohesive class climate
  • Feel a sense of belonging and connection to their school community, and are more motivated to learn
  • Develop critical social skills to form supportive relationships with peers and school staff, and interact with others in a positive way.
