IGA007: Respectful Beats – Drumming As A Therapeutic Experience For Seniors


Respectful Beats? What do you think a business named Respectful Beats does? In this episode, Lee talks to Steve Benedetto, the owner of Respectful-Beats. He conducts interactive drumming workshops for senior citizens throughout New England. His business has grown into a full time mission of inspiring others to feel better through the healing power of music and rhythm.

Steve talks with Lee on how Respectful-Beats started, how drumming benefits older citizens (its not what you think), how he conducts his drumming workshops, and generally shares his passion for drumming with Lee and the audience.

Dig into this episode to be inspired by some out-of-the-box thinking, and learn about the many benefits of embracing and practicing your inner rhythms.
