While group drumming has certainly survived the test of time, the scientific community is just beginning to develop a rudimentary understanding of the biological, psychological and sociological benefits of this multifaceted Recreational Music-making activity.A landmark controlled scientific investigation Bittman and colleagues, Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, January 2001) demonstrated statistically significant positive cell-mediated immune system changes that correlated with one-hour group drumming sessions using the HealthRHYTHMS® group empowerment drumming protocol.This unique approach has been successfully utilized as a well-accepted, cost-effective strategy in a host of clinical outcome-based programs for individuals facing the challenges of heart disease, cancer, chronic lung disease and asthma. New research using the HealthRHYTHMS® group empowerment drumming protocol enhanced with the Yamaha Clavinova® demonstrated statistically significant reductions in burn-out and improvements in mood states for long-term care workers (Bittman and colleagues, Advances in Mind-Body Medicine, Fall/Winter, 2003). Projected cost-savings (by an independent healthcare economic impact firm) to the long-term care industry were actually exceeded by real-world findings.

Group drumming is not about inspiring successful drumming – it’s about inspiring successful living. Group drumming is not about exceptional performance – it’s about exceptional support and personal expression. Group drumming is not about teaching people to play – it’s about giving people permission to play. Group drumming’s best facilitators are not only talented musicians – they are caring, compassionate and intuitive guides. Group drumming is not about acquiring technique – it’s about sharing for the sake of personal EMPOWERMENT.
