Learning to play a musical instrument has many benefits when it comes to both our physical and mental abilities:
Improves confidence, concentration, looking/listening skills, and rhythm.
Teaches respect, perseverance, time management, and how to prioritise.
Helps hand-eye co-ordination, and punctuality.
Develops the skill of sitting still, a good work ethic, patience, and how to accept constructive criticism.
Keeps you calm, off 'gadgets', and off the streets (children).
Playing a musical instrument can be joyful! It can help you to express your individuality, gain an appreciation of different genres and cultures, and can increase memory capacity. Studies have shown that children who play a musical instrument excel more at school in mathematics and literacy, with improved vocabulary due to the introduction of musical terms that other children do not encounter. There are also medical and brain function benefits, as playing an instrument is believed to reduce stress and anxiety by lowering blood pressure and reducing your heart rate.
As well as all these benefits, playing the drums can boost your brain power by working the non-dominant side of your brain, using it to strengthen and co-ordinate your non-dominant limbs. Drumming also improves fitness; one study has stated that 'Just by using hand drums and moving to the beat, people burned an average of 270.4 calories in half an hour.'. It also strengthens your arms, relieves frustration and, being semi portable (the drum sticks or your fingers) you can play anywhere there is a surface to play a beat on.
