Remo Inc. recently trained and sent out a team of drum circle facilitators to deliver a hybrid of the research-based drumming program, Beat the Odds, to sixth and seventh grade students in the Santa Clarita Valley School Districts near Los Angeles, California. The Beat the Odds program has proven to be a viable model for bringing about positive behavioral changes in students and more importantly, has succeeded in being a useful tool for helping kids stay in school. Remo’s trained facilitators will have visited 608 classrooms in 5 school districts training 7,200 students.

Rock the Rhythm, Beat the Odds has launched a web site (www.rocktherhythm.org) showcasing a countdown clock timed to zero out at 10:30 AM on the day of the event, along with links to the latest project news, information on participating organizations, and the “Video of the Day.”
