The Benefits of Hitting Drums
As you know by now, Drum Café team loves to hit drums on any occasions because there’s no better way to relieve stress, get smarter and at the same time have a great time surrounded by friends and colleagues.
Recent studies conducted in Germany show that learning a musical instrument makes you smarter and this is the reason why German students are required to learn a musical instrument from the very first grade. Besides, playing music relieves both pleasure and pain caused by stress or unsolved problems. What better way to create a joyful atmosphere than hitting something and actually making music and not a mess.
Besides, the energetic movements required to play drums require extensive moves that create and use such a great deal of energy, putting body your and mind to burn energy and renew it. And we all know that accumulated energy inside the body usually means fat and in other cases lead to diseases of all sorts. And we’ve come to another benefit of hitting drums, namely physical exercise and movement. Hitting drums requires ample hand movement helping you tone your arms and do a little cardio.
What else? The best things about making sounds or music is that they help you live the present moment. It’s like when you watch kitties play or just listen to good music. There are times in life when you can just be present and focused on the moment and not desperately live in a hurting past or an anxious future. This is what paying drums offers: the present moment!
Hitting drums and making music in general is human’s most natural way of expressing feelings and emotions and probably the best ever form of catharsis. There are people who are introverts and have hard times showing their true selves and embracing themselves as they are. Drums are one of the best tools in the world to show yourself, put yourself on the table, express what and how you feel without second thoughts and with all your might.
Staying positive is another direct result of playing drums and music in general. They say that a positive energy is integrative and negative one is segregating and that a positive man can change 100 negativists while a negative person can only isolate themselves and live alone. Who really wants to live alone and sad when there’s so much loving energy coming from paying drums and having fun?
Last but not least, playing drums is all about sharing love and spreading the most wonderful gift of life with others human fellows. And this is exactly what we do at Drum Café and what we advise you all to do.
