WELCOME TO WARRIOR BEAT
We are a non-profit charity that uses professionally facilitated drum therapy to help US Military Veterans who suffer from PTSD, anxiety, depression, thoughts of self-harm and suicide, substance abuse, and other mental and physical challenges.
We’ve put years of down-range work to launch our new online experience that includes interactive content for US Veterans and the medical professionals who support them.
New services and content are being developed and delivered on an on-going basis.

HOW DOES DRUMMING HELP?
The studies done on therapeutic drumming show something both simple and amazing; It works. Test after test shows that drumming has positive benefits for both mental and physical health. It accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system, reduces tension, anxiety, helps alleviate symptoms of PTSD, stress, and aids in better therapy-based communication with mental health professionals.
HOW DO YOU REACH VETERANS?
We use a combination of methods. First, we offer in-person drum circle facilitation training for hospital staff and care-givers. We also stream our content live to those who may be unable to leave their homes or are dealing with other factors that would otherwise make it hard or impossible to attend a drum circle.
Lastly, we offer a large selection of video courses that aim to teach new drummers and facilitators everything from the basics of playing drums and setting up a drum circle for the first time, to advanced rhythmic techniques and facilitation skills.
