Event description


DRUMBEAT - Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes and Thoughts

An evidence-based social and emotional learning program, incorporating hand-drumming and proven to build resilience and show measurable changes in social behaviour.

Become a DRUMBEAT Facilitator

The DRUMBEAT Facilitator Training Workshop is for professionals who want to deliver the DRUMBEAT Program. Attendees work in a wide range of fields with youth and adults. The 3 Day Course is run by an accredited Holyoake DRUMBEAT Trainer and is the first step towards becoming an accredited DRUMBEAT Facilitator. Find out more about the accreditation process here.

Attendees gain skills in:

  • Group facilitation skills for youth and adult groups

  • Managing challenging behaviours

  • Customising DRUMBEAT for your audience

  • Program Implementation: teaching Core Rhythms, Games and Improvisation, Group Discussion and Program Evaluation


Music provides us with emotional support; we use it every day to relax, to energise and to connect with others. The Holyoake DRUMBEAT Program embraces this relationship we have with music and opens up a new avenue of self-expression that is fun and free of judgement.

The Program aims to engage people, lift their self-confidence and teach a range of life-skills that will enable participants to be emotionally and socially healthy members of the community.

Under the guidance of a facilitator, participants develop and practice social skills such as problem-solving, active listening, empathy and tolerance through playing music with others.

Their learning is extended through discussion that promotes self-reflection and awareness on how their thoughts, feelings and actions impact their relationships with others.
