"It just seem like musicians want to sell a few records and put out a perfume line, and I think it's so sad that there are so many musicians who don't want to change the world... Music has been so much more."

- Moby

Why Kids Should Take Up Drumming

Children are indeed a precious gift who thrive off of learning and being molded. Children need to be kept busy doing constructive activities or they will find other things to get into that are not so constructive. So, what are things that children can take up to keep their minds running with positively?

Well, drumming is a great and constructive activity that children may very well enjoy doing. Why? Because they are allowed to hit things with sticks to create a melodious beat. Yes, drumming can be quite fun, and once children have the ability to hold drumsticks in their hands, they are ready to learn how to drum.

Perhaps you are wondering if there are any other good reason why you, as a parent, should tolerate the amount of noise that your child learning to drum will create. Well, there are a few other very good reasons why this may be well worth if for you as well as your child.


Would you rather put up with the noise of your child drumming, or have them wander the streets doing other things that may possibly put them in danger? Drumming is a way to keep your child busy and out of trouble.

Positive Mental Stimulation

In addition to staying out of trouble, taking up and learning a musical instrument is said to be a good way to exercise the brain and stimulate mental activity, as well as possible increase IQ and intelligence. Surely, you want your child to thrive academically in school. Therefore, you will want to do all that you can to ensure this. Granted, there are other activities that would do much to promote positive mental activity in the brain of your child, drumming is one of those options. Allow your child to have fun and get
smarter with drumming.

Get Your Children Off Of The Couch

Video games and television watching are fun activities, but not very physical. Children need both physical and mental activity. Not only will your child exercise his or her brain with drumming, but you will also be able to squeeze a good amount of physical exercise out of drumming also.

You see, drumming requires you to always be moving. Both of your arms and your legs are moving all the time. Your child will not get restless while drumming because they get to move around constantly.

Improved Coordination

If you are worried about your child being a bit clumsy, drumming can improve their coordination as well as dexterity. It is said that the more dexterity and coordination that one has, the better that person will be able to adapt in any situation thrown at them.

So, if you are worried about getting a headache from all the noise that drumming will make, think about all the positive aspects that your child will benefit from learning to play the drums. These factors far outweigh all the noise and ruckus, would not you agree?
