Student Stories: Wyatt from Westwood Middle

Wyatt Owens

This is the story of Wyatt, a Westwood Middle student who found his rhythm with DRUMBEAT.

DRUMBEAT (Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes and Thoughts) is an evidence-based program that incorporates hand drumming with therapeutic and cognitive principles to support positive behavior.

Funded by the Mindful Schools grant, DRUMBEAT is conducted as part of a targeted initiative at six schools: Alta Vista Elementary, Garner Elementary, Griffin Elementary; Boone Middle, Westwood Middle; and Haines City High.
