EMOTIONAL RELIEF

Drumming has shown stress-relieving and burnout preventing effects and group drumming especially reduces the experience of anxiety, depression and loneliness.

ACCESSIBILITY

Drumming is accessible regardless of age, gender, ethnicity and ability.

COGNITIVE FUNCTION

Drumming has a distinctly therapeutic aspect – it’s good for our state of mind. It exercises the brain through stimulating cognitive functions like perception, attention and memory. Its great for psychomotor co ordination and physical exercise through movement and co ordination.

CREATIVITY AND CONFIDENCE

The value of group drumming as a transformative and healing activity has been widely researched and endorsed by health professionals. Part of the magic of this music, which fits wonderfully in the contexts of community is a sense of belonging and contribution. Drumming is a positive outlet for creative expression which transcends barriers to participation such as language and gender and truly empowers and motivates.

COMMUNICATION

As an opportunity for people to express themselves beyond words, non verbal communication offers a new voice.

INVIGORATING

Drumming is a stimulating activity which leaves the group both energised and relaxed with an uplifted feeling brought about by the physical, emotional and social benefits of group drumming.
