Celebrating International Drum Month

The Percussion Marketing Council has designated the entire month of May as International Drum Month.  We think this is outstanding, however, every day is International Drum Month Day in our world!  

  But, celebrating International Drum Month should be just that: celebrating.  And we had an idea to turn the spotlight around on you, our army of drummers.  

  We recognize how taking up the drums can positively effect your life, and we also recognize the need for more people to take up the drums, instead of video games or mobile devices.  Perhaps, if we can get a few stories out there from some of our customers then that will motivate someone else to play the drums!

💡 Did you know

Playing the drums offers a unique blend of physical and mental health benefits. Physically, drumming is a full-body workout, engaging muscles in the arms, shoulders, legs, and core. The repetitive motion of drumming can improve cardiovascular health and stamina while also enhancing coordination and motor skills. Moreover, the rhythmic patterns involved in drumming stimulate brain activity, leading to improved cognitive function and mental agility. Drumming also serves as a form of stress relief, as the act of drumming releases endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals, promoting a sense of well-being and reducing anxiety and tension. Additionally, drumming in a group setting fosters social connections and a sense of community, further boosting mental health and overall happiness. Whether it's the physical exertion, mental stimulation, or emotional release, playing the drums offers a holistic approach to health and well-being.
