Mission Statement

The Drumming For Your Life Institute is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2002 and is dedicated to using the power of rhythm to help children and youth develop the emotional, academic, and social skills they need to succeed in school and in life

Description

The Reading & Rhythm and Life Skills Drumming Programs are presently running in detention camps, juvenile halls, the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health sites, the Los Angeles County Office of Education sites, Los Angeles Unified School District schools, and family centers that are sponsored by the City of LA's Gang Reduction Youth Development Program.

The Reading and Rhythm Program offers a powerful strategy to address the needs of struggling readers. It is the universal appeal of rhythm that makes Reading and Rhythm stand out among other reading strategies.

The Like Skills Drumming Program uses the power of rhythm along with visualization techniques through 10 character values that are Honesty, Independence, Survival, Trust, Character, Responsibility, Respect, Self-Discipline, Loyalty, and Justice.
