What is the Ronnie Gardiner Method?
The Ronnie Gardiner Method (RGM) is a fun, structured, multi-sensory exercise method which activates many areas of the brain including sight, hearing, motor skills, speech, memory.
The Ronnie Gardiner Method was developed by the American jazz drummer Ronnie Gardiner in the eighties of the last century. He intended to develop a method that could be used to help children in their musical and motor development. However, it soon became apparent that the method was very suitable for use for people with disorders of the central nervous system (CVA/NAH, Parkinson’s, MS and dementia).
