Beautiful Beats is a drumming class that uses rhythms to teach positive communication, social skills, and academic concepts. This is no ordinary drumming circle: it’s a learning environment that engages children through the power of music. 

The protocol Stephen Flinn uses is successful in addressing COGNITIVE, EMOTIONAL, and PHYSICAL goals. Through inventive multi-sensory exercises, the program teaches and enhances skills such as maintaining focus, using memory, socialization, turn taking, sequencing, sign language, laterality, developing leadership, recognition and use of numbers, shapes and colors, spatial awareness, fine and gross motor coordination, following instructions, and communication.

Through a perceptual motor match: VISUAL, TACTILE and AUDITORY combined with SPEECH, the student sees the lesson, feels it, and then hears it as he/she speaks or sings the answers. It is this redundancy of information that facilitates positive results. 

Stephen Flinn has been teaching music for over a quarter century and is a master trainer and facilitator of the Rhythmic Arts Project curriculum. Between 2010- 2015 he taught at Lanterman High School in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Unified School District awarded Stephen a Certificate of Appreciation for his work at the school. In last two years (2015-2016), Stephen led ensembles at the Atlas Foundation for Autism in New York City. As a private music teacher, he has given over 14,000 private lessons and has led over 1,300 ensemble classes. Stephen has written numerous articles for Modern Drummer and Downbeat magazines, and just released his first book, “Contemporary Urban Percussion.” Stephen has appeared on over 27 releases of creative music and has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan. He is a graduate of Seattle University.
