Our FunDrum Circles Will:
PROVIDE MILD EXERCISE – Drumming is an accessible exercise which burns calories and improves mood and may reduce the risk of disease. (Thune, Brenn, Lund, Gaard, 1997)
EMPOWER PEOPLE – Drumming powers people to move beyond their perceived boundaries.
PROVIDE CAMARADERIE AND SUPPORT – Drumming builds camaraderie and support by creating a safe space where people feel comfortable sharing and offering support.
GIVE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR MUSIC MAKING – “Music making offers extensive exercise for brain cells and their synapses (connections). It would be difficult to find another activity that engages so many of the brains systems.”(Weinberger, N., 1998)
REDUCE STRESS – Group drumming strengthened the immune system by increasing Natural Killer (NK) cell activity. (Bittman, Alternative Therapies, 2001
