Drumming is great! I’ve spent most of my days drumming in the past 30+ years and I can honestly say, it’s been a blast! There’s something magical about drumming. I can’t really put it into words—although I’ve spent thousands of hours drumming. We do know that drum therapy has been used for thousands of years to create and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health. Also, research and studies have shown that drumming induces deep relaxation, lowers blood pressure, and reduces stress.
