Join Doug Pickard, REMO Health Rhythms Facilitator and Rock Steady Boxing Affiliate Owner, as he leads DOPABEATS, a six-week drumming class for people with Parkinson's. Express your feelings with easy-to-follow beats and rhythms, and add drumming to your toolbox of therapies and self-management strategies!
Studies have shown that the rhythmic sound and movement of drumming may help improve motor skills, mood, and cognition in people with Parkinson's. Plus, it's a whole lot of fun! We welcome all people with Parkinson's disease and their carepartners to these classes. Registrants are encouraged to commit to the full series, as each session will build on skills and techniques introduced weekly. No musical experience is necessary.
