Music and Health and Wellbeing

Music is good for your health and wellbeing!

Some of the benefits include:

  • Improvement in concentration and focus
  • Mental wellbeing and neutralises stress
  • Self discipline and decision making
  • Social wellbeing 
  • Physical activity – particularly behind the drum kit!
  • Physical activity can improve cardiovascular health, weight management, blood pressure control and mental wellbeing. 

As with any repetitive activity there are risks!

Take good care and caution with:

  • Your hearing (wear ear plugs)
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (ensure good technique, slow accurate progress and contact a health professional if you are experiencing any adverse continuing discomfort.
  • Back Care (pilates and yoga are great for a healthy body and mind and back care in particular) 
  • Stretching (stretch regularly)
  • Rest, nutrition and hydration (drumming is tiring, rest, recover, eat well and hydrate)
