Benefits of drumming

We all feel better after drumming. Clinical research is now supporting this

theory by undertaking studies that show the tangible benefits of drumming to

health and wellbeing.

Only recently however, have we begun to understand the changes

in body chemistry produced by drumming. Recent studies published

in 2001had remarkable outcomes using drums and rhythms and the

impact on the immune system...see:

Playing percussion can open your emotions and nourish them,

enliven a low mood, help your mental clarity and even lend energy

to your physical being.

For me, the impact of rhythm and drumming for therapy can be

truly judged in the real life working situations, where I have use

it. I have personally witnessed some amazing results and have

been fortunate to be able to apply my sessions to many different

groups and see firsthand what effect it has had upon them. I have

documented my experiences and thoughts below and whilst every

group and case presents different challenges, I'm very excited

about the success and benefits it's had upon the participants.

Health benefits

In 2001 Barry Bittman, as CEO and Medical Director of the Mind-Body

Wellness Centre in Meadville, USA, developed a study that showed that

drumming decreases stress and increases disease fighting activity. This

activity circulates white blood cells called Natural Killer Cells and stimulates

the brain which allows information to be absorbed quicker and more easily.

Reducing stress and increasing feelings of wellbeing

Dr. Barry Quinn, a licensed clinical psychologist, noted that as a result of

drumming Alpha brainwaves were increased in his highly stressed patients;

Alpha brainwaves being associated with feelings of well-being and euphoria.

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Physicians are finding that Alzheimer's patients who drum can connect better

with loved ones. Researchers have also discovered that hearing slow, steady

rhythms, such as drumbeats, helps Parkinson's patients move more steadily.

Benefits for youth/teenagers

According to the study results recently published in Advances in Mind-Body

Medicine, the Adolescent Health Rhythms protocol is a new, highly cost-
effective strategy for empowering success with at-risk youth. Instrumental

anger is the clinical term used to describe a delayed expression of

emotion, including revenge or retaliation, such as what is believed to have

precipitated the massacre at Columbine High School, often referred to as the

Columbine Effect. According to principal researcher Barry Bittman, MD this

groundbreaking study has demonstrated statistically significant improvements

in the level of instrumental anger in addition to improvements in school/work

performance and behaviour toward others, with less depression, reactive

anger and interpersonal problems than a control group who did not participate

in the music making activities.
