Drumming has been used in a wide variety of therapeutic
contexts - eg. drumming with cancer patients has shown
an increase in immunity; drumming with the aged has shown
to be helpful in combatting dementia; drumming with psychiatric
patients has shown many positive benefits.
Studies have shown that after only a few minutes of hand
drumming, subjects report an increased sense of well being.
This occurs because drumming affects one's brainwaves
- and increases the production of the feel-good hormone
in your brain. This is also the reason why subjects report
that drumming is excellent for stress relief.
Drumming has proven to be beneficial in a number of medical
contexts, be it group drumming or as individual therapy.

Drum making for Therapy
Drum making is a richly rewarding and therapeutic experience.
Working with wood itself is hugely therapeutic, to work
on making a drum - a functioning musical instrument
- is even more so.
We will guide participants through the various stages
of drum making, until the final musical instrument is
completed. This is an activity which can be completely
immersive, and keep participants engaged for hours.
