Kevin Makarewicz and Georgia Monahan

Kevin Makarewicz and Georgia Monahan

Kevin Makarewicz, MA, LPC, LMT, a long-time psychotherapist and certified Drumbeat facilitator, and teacher Georgia Monahan are now offering a unique drum program in Stamford. The award-winning Drumbeat program makes the empowerment and joy of group drumming available to all, regardless of past musical experience. 

“There is considerable mounting scientific research about the social, emotional and neurobiological benefits of a well-led group drumming program,” says Makarewicz. “Not to mention hundreds of thousands of years of evidence regarding the cultural benefits of group drumming.”

Participants join in music-based games and improvisation, and learn specific basic rhythmic patterns. They participate in discussions linking principals learned and experienced through drumming activities to other aspects of their life.

The hour-long classes are held at Harmony Yoga Studio in Stamford. Teen classes begin at 5:15 and adult classes start at 6:30pm every Monday through November 26. 

Classes are $20. Space is limited; reservations are encouraged.

Makarewicz is an Old Greenwich-based psychotherapist and creative arts facilitator with a background in using the expressive arts modalities for social and emotional development and personal growth. Monahan holds a Master's in Special Education from Dowling College and is specialized in teaching life skills.
