Rock music is among the most renowned music genres in the world. Because of this everyone is up in arms in their parent’s garage trying to practice and hoping that one day they will make it to the spotlight and make the big bucks. This is often not the ending as can be witnessed by the large crowd of people that have failed trying to pursue this kind of music with this very stereotypical mentality. The reason why most people fail is because they think of rock music as just lots of shouting, lots of drums and very bad hairdos. However, there is more that makes rock music good than all the noise that could be emanating from the garage of your parents house.
Having a band is among the things that make rock such a great force to reckon with in the music industry. However, this should not be any band. It has to be a band that has chemistry and understands what each others best aspects are. You can’t have a guy with great vocals yet you want him stuck to the drums. The band has to be able to complement each other so that the end result is great music that is characterized by teamwork and understanding.
Did You Know This About Drumming
When the word ‘drumming’ is mentioned the first thing most people are likely to think of are bands and music in general. It does make sense doesn’t it? Undoubtedly it is rare to come across a music band that doesn’t have a drummer; this is true for both established and upcoming outfits. Be this as it may, drumming isn’t just about making people dance, move their feet or shake their heads; there’s more. This art form can be quite beneficial to one’s health and general well-being.
It’s Good For Emotional Health
You may not be aware of this but there is such a thing as drum therapy. It has been used widely to treat people suffering from a wide range of emotional ailments such as PTSD and depression and has proven quite effective. Drumming basically provides patients with a platform or rather a channel through which they can release their negative emotions safely. It doesn’t just create a superficial effect; it reaches deep into the cells where it helps eliminate unpleasant and traumatic memories consequently making it possible for the patient to make a full recovery.
We live in a world where it is getting harder and harder for one to express their innermost feelings. This is because most people are judgmental and unsupportive. When you have a set of drums in front of you, all such worries cease to exist. It is entirely up to you to decide what to do and how to do it; there is no one to judge or put you down. If you angry and/or sad you can freely relay these emotions through the drum set; the same applies if you are feeling happy and creative. Simply put, drumming is freedom.
Hormones play a major role in determining how we feel on a day to day basis. If everything is okay in your life but for some reason you can’t help but feel worried, bored or just plain angry all the time then there’s every chance hormones are to blame. Drumming can help with this as it stimulates the body to produce endorphins or what are commonly referred to as the ‘feel-good-hormones’. Once these hormones hit the bloodstream, you will feel a significant improvement in your mood and the best part is that the effect will last long after you have stopped drumming.
It may sound a bit exaggerated but it is true. Drumming can help boost the body’s natural defenses. As you might be aware, stress is one of the most powerful immunity suppressants. Once you start drumming, your attention will automatically be diverted from the various realities that may be causing you to feel stressed. This will in turn reduce the strain that that particular state may have been causing on your immunity. During this period of improved immune function your body will embark on fighting disease-causing elements and generally repairing itself – at an accelerated rate – consequently improving your well being. In other words, drumming is very therapeutic.
