EP 191 - Rhythmic Therapy: Using Drums to Help Kids Through Trauma with Rob Leytham
Rob Leytham uses Neuro-Rhythmic Trauma Therapy to help children regulate their emotions with the power of drumming. He uses brain science and his 35 years of drum teaching skills to help kids avoid the normal punishments and suspensions that they would normally face. Not only is his classroom full of Djembes and percussion instruments, but Rob's passion has spread to the entire faculty at Ridgeview where many teachers use percussion to help calm troubled students and the impact has been enormous. Rob has now expanded to traveling around the country to speak about the power of drumming to help regulate kids who need help.
Rob has written 10 books and 20 articles on drumming for major publications. His latest Book/ Music is titled: "The Feeling is Bright: Self Regulation through Rhythm and Rhyme.
