DRUMBEAT stands for Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes and Thoughts.

For children aged 8-12 years, this program (designed by Holyoake) is a structured learning program which uses music, psychology and neurobiology to help participants connect with themselves and with others. Children are expected to attend a 2 hour session (usually on a weekend) once a week for 4-5 consecutive weeks culminating in a performance for friends and family at the end of the program.

For our little Lionhearts, it's a chance to connect again after attending a previous Lionheart camp and it offers an opportunity for them to extend their understanding of their own grief response as well as exploring other areas related to adjusting to their new world following the death of a loved one.

This program runs once a year and our next DRUMBEAT is scheduled to start in May 2024.
