Join The Arc of Luzerne County for an exciting conversation with award winning Drummer/Author/Educator Pat Gesualdo, pioneer of groundbreaking techniques of Drum Therapy,® and celebrated non-profit organization D.A.D. (Drums and Disabilities)

D.A.D. was launched in 2004, as a special education program in New York City and New Jersey school systems. Psychologists, neuroscientists, teachers, law enforcement agencies, child protective agencies, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and behavioral therapists in over 15 countries, use Gesualdo’s revolutionary Drum Therapy techniques in schools, mental health facilities, hospitals, and therapy centers. This effort helps disabled children and adults develop physical and cognitive functioning.

In June 2014, Governor Christie signed Gesualdo’s Legislation into law,. N.J. is the first State to add such additional protection from bullying and discrimination for the disabled population, which Gesualdo wrote to further help disabled children and adults. 

Gesualdo has an exclusive Drum Therapy column in Modern Drummer Magazine, and is the author of the groundbreaking drum instruction book Drum Therapy. He holds a Certificate of Music Education, and is certified by the New Jersey Department of Education to provide New Jersey Teachers with their Mandatory CEU credit hours.
