How will drumming benefit your child?


 ·    helps in the development of reading, writing and maths skills in young children.

·      helps develop basic skills such as gross and fine motor development, visual and auditory discrimination, memory recall, sensory integration and much more.

·      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.

·      helps to release body tension, emotional stress, frustration and pent-up anger, and promotes relaxation. 

 ·      improves self-esteem and social interaction.

·     encourages the development of listening skills, which facilitates team work and group cooperation.

 ·      Auditory development is practiced by listening to the “tone” and “bass” note of the drum and also by playing loudly and softly.

·      Drumming also has all the benefits of physical exercise, such as increased heart rate and blood flow.
