5 Facts about Drumming

  1. Drums are one of the oldest musical instruments in the world! We don’t know exactly how old, but people have found drums, made with alligator skins, dating back to 5500-2350 in China.
  2. Drumming is a communication instrument. Throughout history, it has been used to send messages across long distances from one person, or groups of people, to another.
  3. Drumming is great exercise! If you drum for just half an hour, you can break a sweat more than you would cycling, weight lifting, or hiking.
  4. Drumming is universal. It has been used in almost every civilization for a variety of reasons: to celebrate, declare war, lead groups of people in a rhythmic beat, and guide the tempo of many different types of songs.
  5. Drumming is the music of the heart. When we listen to music having the beat of a drum, our hearts will try to match its tempo — speeding up or slowing down.
