  • How will drumming benefit your child?
    • Drumming helps in the development of reading, writing and maths skills in young children.
    • Drumming helps helps develop gross and fine motor skills, visual and auditory discrimination, memory recall, sensory integration and much more.
    • Drumming helps improve children’s attention spans and concentration. (It's widely used to help ADD and autistic children.)
    • Scientific studies have shown that rhythm and music-making improve one's “spatial-temporal reasoning skills” - these allow us to visualize mathematical and scientific concepts in order to solve complex problems.
    • Drumming helps to release body tension, emotional stress, frustration and pent-up anger, and drumming promotes relaxation.
    • Drumming improves self-esteem and social interaction.
    • Drumming encourages the development of listening skills, which facilitates team work and group cooperation.
    • Drumming improves auditory development by focussing on “tone” and “bass” notes, as well as by playing loudly and softly.
    • Drumming also has all the benefits of physical exercise, such as increased heart rate and blood flow.
