Welcome to Music Therapy Drumming

For thousands of years, drummers and percussionists from various cultures have provided the rhythms that ground and support the songs, dances, and music of their communities. Through study and practice, the power of drumming is still available to anyone who is ready to take the journey. The Music Therapist is in a unique position to utilize the therapeutic potential of drumming traditions to help clients create positive change. Music Therapy Drumming (MTD) provides the means to access and develop this potential.

Music Therapy Drumming is a professional development program for Music Therapists, by Music Therapists.

MTD includes live instruction, resources, and support for all Music Therapists, regardless of prior training or experience playing and/or using percussion instruments and rhythms in performance or clinical settings.
