Rewire Rhythm – A 10-week program for trauma survivors
The Rewire Rhythm program is collaborative, challenging and enjoyable. Participants drum together with a facilitator and occasional guest musicians, for ten weekly 90 min sessions, with the option to create a recording and/or a public performance.
No prior musical experience is necessary and loan instruments are provided.<
Distinct from traditional music therapy, this innovative program brings clinical psychology and neuroscience together with community music.
- Harnessing the power of music to rewire the brain.
- Using rhythm as a powerful way to connect people with each other, and with their own internal rhythms.
- Drumming up empowerment and reconnection.
- Helping people get back ‘in-sync.’
Rewire Rhythm aims to equip participants with the resources to continue running their own drumming group after the initial 10-week program. As other groups complete the program, participants can access more opportunities for collaboration and group performances, providing ongoing creative outlet and building a community of empowered, resilient drummers.
The program is delivered by Dr James Richmond, BA(mus), BSc (Psych) Hons, MPsych, PhD., a clinical psychologist, trained percussionist and experienced music educator.
