“Motivational…. Inspiring…. Healing”
"The Drum Healing Course is about intentional drumming… drumming with a purpose.
It does not focus solely on technique but rather lays the foundation for creativity and expansion of your own drumming practice, no matter what level you are on. It teaches you beats which you can use to affect your own inner world of mental and emotional health and clarity as well as how to be a positive force on the lives of others thru drumming.
But not only the beats… you will also learn how to morph and change them… play with them and, from them, create your own unique style of healing drumming.
Expect to walk away from this course with foundational tools that you will use for the rest of your lifelong drumming practice."
Have you been in a drum circle and felt something powerful? Regardless of your previous experience or drumming skill, I’ll bet you left feeling great. You were relaxed and in the zone. Then you got home and didn’t know where to go from there.
Have you been drawn to the drum and not known where to start? You instinctively know that there is something to the drum and the power of drumming.
Have you been a client, an REI Provider or simply listened to my music and wished to see what it would feel like to pick up a drum yourself?
Have you tried to meditate and found your mind jumping all over the place? You have an active mind and emptying it doesn't feel natural to you.
You're not alone. This was me 35 years ago. Then I met a teacher who changed my world. So much so that I dedicated my entire professional life to taking what he taught me and turning it into a therapeutic practice. With this knowledge I've:
I've distilled the foundations of drum healing across time and tempo into my Drum Healing Course so that you, too, can feel the transformational power of playing a drum. You don't need to take it to the extreme I have, though.
In 1983, I met a teacher that changed my life. Lloyd was a master drummer, healer, and my mentor. He showed me a world of drumming that I didn’t know existed.
When I first met Lloyd, I was studying percussion at the Musician’s Institute. I had also just completed a 50-week tour with a rock band and had 4 solid years as a professional drummer playing a variety of styles.
Needless to say, I was no stranger to drumming and rhythm.
But I had yet to fathom the power that the drum could have on players and listeners. With Lloyd, I experienced how drumming becomes the foundation for a healing ceremony, ultimately determining its success (or not). I watched as Lloyd corrected behaviors with his rhythms. I was tutored on how to use core rhythms in improvisation to heal another person.
The lessons I learned from Lloyd settled into my soul and eventually drove me to a 35 year career (so far) pushing the bounds of drumming and its clinical application to influence the brain and behavior.
Since 1992, my music has been used by hundreds of thousands of people to help calm, focus, sleep, meditate, create, energize, and uplift.
Up until 2015, I rarely shared my background and techniques with others. Writing my book, Different Drummer, shifted my desire to do more than just scratch the surface.
So I created my online Drum Healing Course. With it, I tried to convey the core aspects of my studies with Lloyd and my other teachers, offering some powerful techniques, history and rhythms, and opening the door to a deeper healing than is available in a drum circle or shamanic practice.
My Drum Healing Course is the missing link.
Here, you will transform with the rhythms as they pulse through your entire body.
As you learn the rhythms and techniques and feel the drive of the rhythms, you will have the true experience of the drum. I will mentor and instruct. We will play. You will feel the impact of my Gonga drum’s bass.
For six weeks, we will explore the roots of rhythm healing. Experiential. Immersive. Kinesthetic. We will move through cultures and history and into the science and clinical application of rhythm.
Jumping from Shamanism, Shango, and trance drumming, I will bring you into the deep seat of rhythm healing.
You will understand why certain rhythms calm the body while others focus the brain.
You will learn how to play the drum for healing and self-care.
You will feel the power of the drum in your mind and your body.
I will play. You will play, meditate, journey, and heal. This is the very root of rhythm, the core of being one with the drum.
At the Strong Institute, we call rhythm healing by other names: auditory driving, brain stimulation, specificity, and synchronization. There is a little bit of entrainment, too. No matter how you play it, the rhythms will drive your brain and your body toward health and wellness.
Geared toward drummers – and soon-to-be-drummers - of all levels, the Drum Healing Course swings open the doors to a profound relationship with rhythm.
Discover how the drum can change your body, your mind, and settle its rhythms deep into your heart.
The Drum Healing Course covers everything.
