What we do
A Gentle Beat
Beat It Percussion is developing a new project called A Gentle Beat. This has grown from our Care and Nursing Home customers’ requests to provide a meaningful creative experience for people who are hard to reach through advanced dementia or nearing the end of life.
Everyone should have a chance to beat a drum, and one of the best times for this is in school. We work with schools of all ages and are keen to get young people inspired by drumming and percussion. Specialised sessions can be provided for SEN groups.
2018 sees exciting opportunities for growth and development for Beat It Percussion CIC.
Beat It uses rhythm to integrate diverse groups in the community.
We have been engaging in research through many of our projects. Working with the University of Gloucester more details of our research wok can be found on the link below.
In 2018 Beat It’s CEO and lead practitioner will qualify as a Group Sound Therapy Practitioner with the British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST).
