The health benefits of drumming range from improving coordination to providing a good cardiovascular workout and releasing endorphins.
Let’s talk about five major health benefits of drumming.
5 Ways Drumming Is Good for Your Health
- It improves coordination & concentration. Drumming is all about two things: concentration and coordination. Hitting a drum in different spots or different ways creates a different sound, and it takes coordination and concentration to recognize and recreate these noises. Also, being able to focus on your part of the music takes a great deal of concentration. These two skills learned in drumming can extend through to other aspects of your life, too, and can improve your spacial awareness and make you a better multitasker.
- It promotes confidence. The sound of a drum is strong and unyielding. When someone is carrying the pace of a tune through the rhythm of a drum, it is a powerful feeling. This feeling is confidence and a sense of capability. Not only can feeling confident improve your mental health and emotional well-being, but you also make better decisions daily.
- It lowers blood pressure, reduces stress, & reduces anxiety. Drumming has so much evidence for personal healing, be it psychologically or physically. Studies have shown that group drumming has been known to reduce anxiety and lower blood pressure. Group drumming creates a sense of community and security, which is something that naturally makes us more comfortable and less stressed.
- It releases endorphins. Drumming is an exercise, and like any exercise, it releases endorphins into your bloodstream. One BeatOrbit session is the equivalent of taking a nice walk or a short run, except it’s much easier on your knees and is a lot more fun at the same time. Endorphins, called “feel-good chemicals,” relieve pain symptoms and promote happiness.
- It boosts the immune system. This is a side-effect of relieving stress and high blood pressure, but it’s very important to note. Most people don’t consider how our daily lives affect our immune system, but living in a state of chronic stress can make us sicker over time. By lowering our stress levels, drumming improves our immune system, allowing our bodies to fight infections quickly and efficiently, so we’re sick less often and for a shorter period of time.
