…Intelligent: Drumming is found to improve concentration and focus. Also, studies reveal that playing percussion instruments strengthen children’s math and literacy skills.
…Physically and Mentally Active: Drumming increases your heart rate and blood flow. It also stimulates the left and right side of the brain simultaneously.
…Connected to the Earth: “Drumming directly links humans with the vibration of the Earth by slowing the brain waves to around 8 cycles per second, the same frequency as the planet” (Feathers, 1995).
