8. It’s a great workout. There’s a reason that PoundFit classes are dedicated to the motions used while drumming. Using your upper body and your lower body to create drum beats burns calories and a lot of energy. An hour-long drumming session can burn over 200 calories! It’s no wonder rock stars are in such good shape.
9. Playing drums can help relieve stress. It’s no coincidence that you feel your levels of stress and anxiety diminish when you hear or play certain music. Rhythm, and more specifically the act of drumming, has been shown to reduce stress hormones such as cortisol. Drumming can give you energy, can relax you and can help you blow off steam, resulting in a more healthy mood.
