Mission Statement

“The Drumming For Your Life Institute is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2002 dedicated to using the power of rhythm to help children, youth and adults develop the emotional, academic, and social skills needed to succeed in school and in life.”

Children who are not successfully taught reading skills become adults who are functionally illiterate. Young adults who cannot read have limited earning options with poverty or crime as a common result.  For these unfortunate individuals, and for the rest of society, these are costly alternatives.   In either case, our taxes will be used to provide for them through welfare or another costly result--jail.

The Drumming for Your Life Institute offers an inexpensive alternative with a far better outcome.

Our Reading & Rhythm program inspires students to read by using innovative techniques, to create greater focus, and build self-esteem.  Rather than sticking to the old ways of teaching reading, we teach students to trust their intelligence, their creativity and their own natural ability to grasp ideas and facts by the revolutionary use of rhythm which converts the fear of failure into the will to fight to learn.
