Drums help kids focus.

Studies have shown that the drums are one of the few instruments that access the entire brain, stimulating all the main sectors. Active engagement of playing rhythms aid in syncing the left and right hemispheres of the brain, leaving us feeling more connected with ourselves. Hyperactive behaviors such as not being able to concentrate, pencil tapping, and squirming in seats during school hours are a release for a child’s hyperactivity.

Usually many children dealing with ADHD do not receive the help or treatment they need and their issues go untreated.

So what if they were able to participate in a fun activity where they can learn to play a new instrument, whether it be alone or with friends and receive these amazing mental health benefits. Kids who receive a creative outlet benefit greatly in all health aspects. For children with ADHD, learning to play music bolsters attention and focus, reduces hyperactivity, and strengthens social skills. Playing an instrument requires rhythm, rhythm is structure, and structure is soothing to an ADHD brain struggling to regulate itself to stay on a linear path.

For a child with excess energy and difficulty concentrating, picking up a drum stick and banging on a drum will give them that immediate thrill and enjoyment and because of the natural rhythm in us, it will much sooner start to sound like they’re playing something that could go on to form part of a song or solo; once again building confidence and self-esteem.Taking part in musical activities is a great opportunity for kids to develop their creative and imaginative thinking and the extra energy can be channeled in their efforts and originality.
