Listening to music provides phenomenal health benefits but playing an instrument goes far beyond that! Combining an auditory and physical experience has many healing properties especially when you feel the rush of the smallest hairs on your body being activated through playing, the rush is an addictive high! Some prefer to get this high from drinking, drugs or other vices, however playing drums is a natural high with nothing but benefits. Whenever we feel stressed or just want to escape, just sit behind your kit and play. It is difficult to think about your problems when you are deep into creating music and are physically using your body to reduce stress hormones.
Drums create what is referred to as “Movement Medicine”, our bodies are made to move, what better stimulus to move than music. We all know that the crowd is listening and moving to the beat you are creating which holds the band together.
