Art Beat connects people through shared music making. No matter what your age, background, or skill level, there is room in the music for everyone.


Art Beat specialises in music for health, social care and wellbeing settings. Improvised group drumming and music making are natural human behaviours - an ideal medium to bring people together around a shared purpose. Everyone works together to create their own rhythms and relate them to others - developing skills of listening, interaction and teamwork along the way...





Based in Glasgow, Scotland, and founded in 2002 by community music specialist Dr. Jane Bentley, Art Beat has developed an international reputation for delivering unforgettable musical experiences with genuine meaning and depth.
