”I think drumming is really helping me. My reading comprehension is really better. Before drumming, I couldn't remember what our first story was about and now with drumming, I can remember. When we didn't have any rhythm, I used to read slowly and now I read faster and smoother than I did before. I am starting to like school some more. I think drumming is going to help me with the rest of my life.”-5th grade student

Rhythm is the current that runs through words. The Doubtful Voice is the psychological and emotional barrier that impedes students’ ability to learn to read. We use a strong assertive rhythm that creates a pathway for focus and concentration, and thereby removes all doubtful voices.

Reading & Rhythm encompasses all the educational building blocks necessary for students to become excellent readers.

We need your help to get Reading & Rhythm into more school systems to help more students. Please donate today.

The Reading & Rhythm program brings back the joy of teaching for teachers AND the excitement of learning for students! “Now I feel smart” declares an LA-based middle school student. The merging of rhythm into the learning process helps transform negative energy into a positive force in the classroom.

“Thanks for the great work you are doing.”
