What is KICDRUM?
KICDRUM is a school-based therapeutic intervention model that is based on the award-winning Australian program Drumbeat. Drumbeat is an evidence-based intervention that uses drums as a therapeutic tool to get participants involved and working together towards a common goal, challenging each other and above all having fun.
KICDRUM will creatively inspire participants and build their self-esteem as students interact with each other during the 10 week sessions. Participants will have the opportunity to perform for their peers and parents at the end of the sessions. KICDRUM will address issues facing today’s classrooms in a creative and supportive environment.
