Summary
Beat the drum today for this holidays that celebrates the oldest musical instrument.

Drumming and percussion in general are the oldest instrument (besides the voice) in human history. Drums date back much farther than any modern instruments, including the guitar and string instruments.

Drumming is important to music. It also happens to be a great outlet and good exercise. According to the History of Drums website, half an hour of drumming burns more calories compared to activities such as weight lifting, cycling, and moderate-level hiking.

Particularly if you are in marching band, you’re adding on 10-30 pounds of weight (imagine walking around with a sledgehammer strapped to your body) marching an intricate memorized routine while performing a challenging set.

Drumming also brings emotional benefits, too. The brain releases endorphins after playing music, similar to a “runner’s high”. Drumming and making music in general also helps with academic stress, build confidence, and learn how to communicate with others.
