Why Drum?

Why Drum?

“Anyone can drum,” says Gary Meitrott, founder of Drum Journeys of Earth. “Rhythm is within all of us. It’s inside us as we breathe, as our heart beats, as we walk. It’s on the streets, in the cars we drive. It’s the earth itself. Rhythm is everywhere, and we cannot exist without it.” 

Research has suggested that group drumming improves concentration, reduces stress, alleviates pain and boosts the immune system. What’s more, the mental and physical engagement is exhilarating, making it ideal for young and old alike. There is a multi-sensory engagement involving visual, audio and tactile.
