It has now passed 40 years since the birth of the method. It was in 1980 that a personal tragedy was to transform Ronnie’s life and seriously awaken his interest in the workings of the brain and it’s functions. With his knowledge and prowess of playing the drums he began to develop a form of training with the object of stimulating the brain as much as possible. This training form is now called, ” The Ronnie Gardiner Method.”
