TRAP Inspires At USF

Eddie Tuduri presented the TRAP program as part of The Rehabilitative Music Workshop held at the University of South Florida this past April.  The workshop was put on by the Delta Chi chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota, the International Music Fraternity for Women.

The Workshop featured a lecture and demonstration with TRAP founder Eddie Tuduri, as well as a lecture featuring Certified Music Practitioner Lloyd Goldstein. The workshop’s attendees included University of South Florida students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the Tampa Bay community.

“As a Biomedical Sciences/pre-Physical Therapy Major and Music Minor at USF, the role of music in medicine has always been a huge part of my life,” said Carrie Zilbauer, Coordinator of the Workshop and Sigma Alpha Iota’s Philanthropy Committee Chairperson. “I hope that this event enlightened those in attendance to the great potential of music in rehabilitation and medicine.”

The Rhythmic Arts Project is becoming more recognized for its potential to augment healing therapies for a variety of cognitive, emotional, and physical disabilities. TRAP is not merely a drum circle;  it is a program that integrates drums and percussion instruments as creative learning tools that address life skills and enhance the mind, body and spirit. No previous knowledge of percussion is needed to participate or teach the TRAP program.
