Building Resilience Through Rhythm

Passionate about using music to improve therapeutic outcomes, Rebecca's masters research evaluated the DRUMBEAT program's effectiveness to improve the social and emotional development in young people from diverse cultural backgrounds. Rebecca is a Senior Accredited Facilitator of the DRUMBEAT program and has presented at:

  • Generation Next, Mental Health Summit, University of Queensland, 2017

  • Staff workshops in leading Brisbane secondary schools, 2017 and 2019

  • New Research Mini-Conference, University of Auckland, 2014

  • Delivery of the full program to two secondary schools, Auckland, 2013 and 2014 

Contact Rebeca for more information about how the 10 week program can fit easily into a school term or ask about one-off events that can be run as a team building activity on school camps, for staff professional development, at conferences, or as an interactive performance at an event.

Rebecca is currently adapting the program to meet the needs of parents and infants. Follow her on social media for updates on this.
