"The Science is in. Group drumming improves mental health"
We've been drumming in groups long before recorded history. It's a fundamental part of being a human. Everyone can do it. You can learn a basic pattern in 5 minutes and play a decent pattern in half an hour.
Mental Health and Drumming
The therapeutic benefits of group drumming are immense. Multiple studies have found a link between group drumming and increased confidence, increased creativity and social resilience and reduction in anxiety and depression.. Its a great way to connect. Drumming is a physical act but it can also be a deeply spiritual experience.
Group Drumming for Children
Its easy to see drumming as a language and for some children communicating is difficult. Drumming allows self expression and confidence. It encourages collaboration and has been proven to reduce childhood anxiety.
Mat has a wealth of experience facilitating group drumming in a number of areas from rehab clinics to schools, work places and schools for special needs.
