1. DRUMMING IS AN OUTLET FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES
Let your child begin channeling their energy into acoustic drumming. It feels good to hit and crash things, and it can even improve a child's bad mood by releasing endorphins.
2. DRUMMING IMPROVES ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN CHILDREN
Research has proven that drumming can have a positive impact on cognitive development. Whether it’s listening skills, memory skills or fine motor skills, rhythm training comes with major benefits that can be applied in the classroom. Rock drumming for just an hour a week can help autistic children with better focus and social interaction at school. And as if that wasn’t enough, learning rhythm theory teaches counting and fractions, too!
3. DRUMMING IS PRODUCTIVE FOR CHILDREN
Rather than sit in front of a screen or be tempted by trouble, a regular activity like drumming provides a useful distraction. Drumming requires focus and energy, it’s also the perfect outlet to relieve stress and anxiety. Some go so far as to describe playing drums as meditative and good for mental health.
4. DRUMMING IS AMAZING EXERCISE FOR CHILDREN
Whether a child is playing pop, funk, or rock, they are increasing their heart rate and engaging muscles while moving around the set. Drummers develop coordination between limbs, which exercises the brain.
5. DRUMMING BUILDS CONFIDENCE
Some shy children excel when discovering playing a ‘loud’ instrument. It gives them a bigger voice. But being able to work on a skill, break it down into manageable parts, and feel successful when you master it… (that’s a confidence-builder in itself). Learning new rhythms and songs on the drums means overcoming obstacles and looking a challenge straight in the eye.
