FIVE GREAT REASONS TO LEARN TO PLAY THE DRUMs!
If you are on the fence about taking drum lessons read on. There are many reasons for you to take the plunge and book yourself your first lesson. Here are just a few of them:
1. IT IS FUN AND EASIER THAN YOU THINK
Perhaps the best reason to learn to play the drums is that it is fun, a lot of fun. Provided you do not put yourself under too much pressure, you will enjoy the learning process. Once you have mastered playing you will love being able to recreate your favourite songs, and entertaining your family and friends.
It is also much easier than you think.
So easy, in fact, that many students end up being able to play something after just a couple of lessons. It is usually a simple tune, but it is very satisfying to be able to play something, so early in the process. With most other instruments, being able to play something so early in the learning process is impossible.
Of course, learning to play the drums really well takes time, but, with practice and a good drum teacher, you will make fast progress!
2. LEARNING TO PLAY THE PIANO PROTECTS YOUR MIND
Having fun in your life is also important from a health point of view. Studies show that it can quite literally keep you sane. Being able to enjoy yourself helps to relieve the day-to-day stresses of life.
Playing an instrument is a great stress reliever. It allows you to switch off from your troubles and focus on something that you enjoy.
Studies show that learning to play an instrument also helps with cognitive development. It is particularly beneficial for children, but adult students also benefit in this way.
There is also some evidence that learning to play the drums can help to delay the onset of some serious mental health conditions.

3. IMPROVE YOUR SOCIAL SKILLS
Interestingly, because there is a strong relationship between music and language playing an instrument can also improve your social skills. It can turn you into a better communicator, as well as a more attentive listener.
When you play the drums, over time, your brain starts to work slightly differently. Your confidence grows and your communication skills improve.
In addition, learning to play the drums naturally puts you into direct contact with other people. If you, or your child, is a bit shy taking lessons is a great way to break through and start to enjoy being around other people.
Later, when you are more confident, you will be able to play with a band or orchestra and perform in public, if you want to. Many people find that doing so expands their social circle, and helps them to get out more.
4. THE ABILITY TO PLAY ALL KINDS OF MUSIC
When many people think of the drums, the first thing that pops into their mind is rock music. As a result, there is a tendency to forget that you can play practically anything on the drums!
If you don’t believe us, just go to YouTube and watch some drumming videos - Honestly, you will be stunned by just how flexible the drums are, in the right hands. There is absolutely no reason why you can’t learn to play that way too.
5. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY FOR LIFE
The interesting thing about the drums is that it is an instrument that you can enjoy playing even when you are quite old or frail if you develop the correct technique.
Playing the drums looks physically hard, but sitting down in front of the drums, is far more comfortable than trying to jam a hard violin under your chin, or hold up a trumpet for long periods.
