Drumming Is Fun and It’s Good for You!

Not only is drumming fun, but more and more studies are showing that it is a healthy lifestyle choice. (See www.drnorthrup.com/healthbenefitsdrumming, http://tinyurl.com/greenmediainfo, www.buddhaweekly.com/drumming-for-mindfulness.) Drumming can help you relax, manage stress, and enhance your overall sense of well-being. At Drum n Fun, we invite you to leave thoughts and worries behind, as you express yourself creatively in the moment, in the music. 

“The people who have come to our Decompression Lessons have expressed to me how much they enjoy Drum n Fun’s drumming for relaxation class, and they  have returned repeatedly to re-take it … I have witnessed people taking the class and they seem to be truly exuberant while drumming. They also appear very happy and relaxed when they leave, which is one of the goals of our Decompression Lessons.” –Cathy Haupt, Vocational Case Manager, Goodwill Industries of Kanawha Valley, Inc.

Drumming Is Great for Community Building and Team Strengthening.

Drumming is a creative and cooperative musical activity. Participants listen actively to one another and blend their rhythms to create an ever-changing song that is soothing … or exhilarating … but always magical! Drumming brings people together and can strengthen connections and communication. As this Washington Post article reports, more and more people are discovering the magic and the healing powers of drumming! http://tinyurl.com/wpdrumming.
