Your arms are doing several things at once while your feet do something different and your entire body needs to keep the beat. Not a simple task. Learning the drums will help you train your mind to focus intensely on several tasks at once while also using your body. And if you can use that concentration for almost anything.
13. You will improve your reflexes. Drumming requires extremely quick movements of the hands, fingers and feet in order to maintain the beat and work on several different tasks at one time. By training your body to excel at drumming you will simultaneously improve your reflexes, as your body will be more accustomed to quick, repeated movements.
