Beautiful Beats Class

For Preschool Students ages 3 – 6

Come met Stephen for an introductory class to learn more about how his work can profoundly impact your developing preschooler!


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.
