The benefits of drumming:

You've probably heard that drumming improves mental health and better wellbeing? It reduces tension, anxiety and stress, calms the mind and releases endorphins.

Did you know that it also strengthens neurological pathways? Plus, drumming at our social events helps strengthen the feeling of unity, connectedness and togetherness!
