The Music Within
Drumming can dramatically improve physiological, mental and physical coordination, which makes it an extremely effective catalyst for learning and development.
In Drumming Up Business seminars, Music is our foundation, which has been formulated to provide an environment where the participants are engaged, encouraged, inspired and challenged.
Music is the Universal Language of Mankind
"For ages it's been known that music and learning go hand-in-hand. Balancing and developing both the left side of the brain (logical) and right side of the brain (creative); can help facilitate learning and enhanced creativity in our personal and professional lives."

"NEW STUDY CLAIMS THAT DRUMMERS ARE MORE INTELLIGENT" - Huffington Post
Drummers are better known for their beat than their brain power, but research has suggested that they might actually be natural intellectuals.
According to a collection of studies, drummers are extremely intelligent - due to a variety of factors relating to being in the rhythm section.
The news comes courtesy of Polymic, who have compiled a series of reports from Oxford and Harvard universities found that drummers produced a "natural high" when playing together, which heightened both pain and happiness thresholds..
Researchers at Stockholm's Karolinska Institutet found that drummers who kept a tighter rhythm also scored better on a 60-question intelligence test. This is a reflection of better problem solving skills, which creates a positive impact on those around them.
Additionally research from the University of Texas tested the same process on children with ADD, finding that it not only had the same effect as Ritalin, but their IQ's actually went up.
In the final study, researchers at Harvard found that drummers use a different internal clock that moves in waves, rather than linearly. This pattern of rhythm is found in human brainwaves, sleeping heart rates, and the nerve firings in felines’ ears.
