This post is a continuation of my previous post “How Playing an Instrument Benefits Your Brain”. Carlos Courtney, a student of mine and drum instructor, found this video and requested it be on my blog. It’s amazing how playing an instrument (like drums) has such a positive impact on us and spurs emotional and behavioral growth. I am putting links to the studies mentioned under the video. Enjoy “Why You Shouldn’t Quit Your Music Lessons” and contact me with any questions.

I have been telling my students, parents and other teachers for years how playing drums or any instrument has a positive effect on our brains. A student of mine and drum instructor, Carlos Courtney, found this video on the subject, so here it is. Enjoy!  As always contact me with any questions and keep drumming on!
