with Hands & Hearts Drumming

Hands & Hearts Mission:

To create positive social and emotional learning skill set opportunities to students through drumming and the arts that will help them navigate their way through life.

UCLA researchers have shown
that Beat the Odds®
can significantly reduce a spectrum of behavior problems in children, such as those associated with inattention, withdrawn/depression, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, attention deficit/hyperactivity, oppositional defiance, and sluggish cognitive tempo. In addition, the curriculum is inclusive, culturally relevant, and does not bear the stigma of therapy.
