About the Presenter
Josh Robinson is a professional Percussionist, teaching artist, and drum facilitator. His website reads “Nourishing Inner Peace Through Hitting Things” which speaks to how drumming has helped him heal from loss, process challenges, and express himself beyond the limits of words. For the past 17 years he has used his skills, expertise, and life experience to share drumming and the many gifts it brings with thousands of people each year around the country. His approach is personal, passionate, creative, and intentional. He has an ability to connect with a wide range of audiences, put them at ease, and engage and unify them through rhythm. Josh has said “Yes!” to working with a broad range of communities over the years including “at-risk” youth populations, addiction/recovery, cancer patients, grieving children and families and many more. Through these experiences he has learned how his work connects and resonates with a variety of ages, backgrounds, cultures, and environments. Josh was invited to be the inaugural Thomas Jefferson University artist-in–residence where he has taught a Humanities course to medical students for the past 4 years. He recently received a “Community Hero Award” from The Uplift Center For Grieving Children in Philadelphia, and a “Service Award” from Rutgers University “Future Scholars” program for at-risk youth in Camden NJ. He was invited to the BuzzFeed in CA to work with staff for an employee wellness workshop and has been a keynote speaker for organizations working with bereavement, cancer, addiction/recovery, and various school groups. Josh is grateful to be on a heart-led path of helping people use drumming as a tool for self- expression, community building, and emotional release while sharing his passion.
