HealthRHYTHMS Endorsed Facilitators
This valued component of our team consists of professionals from a variety of occupations around the world who have fully integrated the HealthRHYTHMS protocol into their work and/or personal lives. Remo, Inc. offers endorsement to a very limited number of the many highly qualified HealthRHYTHMS trained facilitators. We believe these individuals share our vision of the program and have had time to significantly integrate HealthRHYTHMS and the Recreational Music-Making Philosophy into their lives and work. These facilitators represent a treasure chest of knowledge and experience using HealthRHYTHMS with numerous populations, each expressed through their own unique professional credentials and experience. They may serve as mentors providing insights to other trained facilitators in their field of expertise. Due to the increasing demand for HealthRHYTHMS representatives at conferences, you may see them representing Remo HealthRHYTHMS in their communities. Find an Endorsed Facilitator.
Remo, Inc. is a manufacturer, and we are not involved in retail sales to the public. So to meet the needs of organizations and facilitators for consultation regarding instruments our team includes our US HealthRHYTHMS dealer partner - West Music from Coralville, IA. Jenny Winegarden is the hand percussion educational consultant for West Music. Jenny is HealthRHYTHMS trained, has a bachelor's degree in Music Therapy and has extensive experience with music-based programs.
