Rhythms to Routes

In collaboration with the Island’s Elder services and Dr. Jay Segel,  we are conducting the first ever medically based research project of the benefits of ensemble drumming for the elderly, particularly people with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological issues. 
Our initial two year program has shown results, in that the participants report better mobility, flexibility, and coordination. 
Our new study  uses GaitScan and BRIEF technology under the supervision of Dr. Jay Segel and other medical professionals, to produce medically conclusive results pertaining to the befits of this activity.
Please contact us for more information, and consider helping us continue this vital effort to improve the quality of life for thousands of people.

This program is partially funded by the Martha's Vineyard Cultural Council.
