At Rhythmic Innovation...

We believe that rhythm is a tool that will help advance education, wellness and community.  In fact, research shows that group drumming has the ability to improve mood, promote non-verbal communication, and increase commitment to those we drum together with. We offer music therapy and group drumming programs for private events, schools, clinical settings and corporations.
