Research

Beat It Percussion ensures our projects are outstanding through evaluation and contributing to academic research.

We have enlisted the support of the University of Gloucestershire to help measure the social impact of our venture. Two further projects are currently being evaluated by them.

The report from our 2016-17 Drumming Together shows how our objectives were met as the programme was delivered and established. Our 2018 Sandwell Pilot Evaluation Report demonstrates significant findings around well-being for participants.

Further evaluation projects will include a report on the Pilot in Powys of A Gentle Beat. We are also working with NHS partners to measure health benefits to participants in the Drumming Together programme.
