Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center to Host Highly Acclaimed Music and Medicine Program
Date:9/10/2008

MIDLAND, Pa., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center (http://www.lppac.org/) will host the HealthRhythms Group Empowerment Drumming program on Sept. 12-14, 2008. Leading neurologist and mind-body researcher Barry Bittman, M.D., and music therapist Christine Stevens will present the program at the Lincoln Park facility in Midland, Pa.

The workshop will show participants various group drumming exercises that can benefit their health. Those attending will also receive more information and research about group drumming.

"The HealthRHYTHMS(R) program with Dr. Bittman and REMO is the first step in the development of a comprehensive recreational music making program at Lincoln Park," says Stephen Catanzarite, Lincoln Park's managing director.

Hospitals, schools, corporations, and communities can use the drumming techniques to support overall well-being, according to Dr. Bittman's research. CNN Headline News featured Dr. Bittman to discuss his 2003 study that showed one company's employees had improved moods and reduced burnout rates after participating in group drumming sessions.

Christine Stevens recently traveled to Iraq, where she used drumming to help resolve conflicts and empower Iraqi youths. The first lady of Iraq attended the sessions, and now drum circles are being used as a community building tool in the country.

"Our goal is to offer music-based programs in hospitals for integrative medicine, in schools for classroom management, in corporations for employee wellness and teambuilding, and for community and intergenerational events," added Catanzarite.

The Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center is located 45 minutes northwest of Pittsburgh and southeast of Youngstown. The $30 million facility opened in 2006 and is home to the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School, a Pennsylvania public charter school providing a state-approved academic program along with professional training in music, theater, dance, creative writing, vocal performance and media arts.

Everyone is invited to attend HealthRhythms. No prior music or healthcare experience is needed to participate in the program and drums will be provided. Members of the media are also welcome to attend the sessions.
