Presented by Simon Faulkner


Rhythmic Interventions for
Engaging the Disengaged
Music reaches beyond words and across cultures. 

Drumming is fun, engaging & a natural activity for people from cultures across the world. The drum is an instrument that can be played almost immediately, providing participants with a feeling of accomplishment & success that increases motivation to continue.  Unlike many other intervention strategies rhythmic therapies avoid stigmatising their participants by the amount of pleasure gained from participation; in schools, young children line up to get involved.

Simon Faulkner, a leader in the use of rhythmic interventions in therapeutic practice, presents this two-day workshop which delivers an accessible and flexible platform for professionals wishing to work with rhythmic music to engage young people and adults in social and emotional learning. It includes over 100 new exercises and rhythm games for both counselling and education settings and can be adapted for individual, family and larger group work.

"The beauty of R2R is in its flexibility. I am able to tailer the program to the needs of the group. Whether in sessions with individuals all the way through to larger groups, R2R allows me the flexibility to address any number of issues that come up and for any length of time"Gerard McDonnell, Senior Psychological Advisor, Specialist Support Unit, NSW Education   

"Awesome! I found Simon’s teaching/mentoring - organised, comprehensive and meaningful. I left happy, grateful &  empowered" Solinda Bautista, Music Therapist

"Through my facilitation of social and emotional learning groups that combine both drumming and reflection, I have seen tremendous success with indigenous students. Both male and female students gain confidence, resilience, a stronger sense of self and a stronger sense of belonging. Many of our indigenous students are better able to communicate with the assistance of the drums and feel more comfortable communicating within the group due to the relationships built during drumming games and activities. I am yet to work with a student who has not displayed a growth in social and emotional skills after being part of this work – I couldn’t recommend the Rhythm2Recovery program enough.”  Rebecca Arbon, Senior Teacher, Positive Learning Team – PARR Rural, NT Department of Education
