Research has shown the health benefits of drumming for neonates, children, adolescents, adults and older adults, and feedback from the community suggests that drumming may be particularly beneficial for groups with special needs. The vibration from a shared drum encourages playing in sync. Research has shown that rhythmic synchronicity stimulates the reward center of the brain and encourages positive behavior.
Both scientific research and anecdotal evidence suggests that group drumming can facilitate engagement and creative self-expression, stress reduction, mood improvement, community building, social connection, nonverbal communication. movement, energy boosting, calming, centering, attention and focus. Playing on the same drum encourages cooperation, teamwork, and community building.
In addition, drumming is a nonverbal activity that enables anyone to participate. Many of our products offer Comfort Sound technology with a lower pitch to facilitate rhythmic synchronicity without overstimulation.
