 Bang on the Drum All Day

drum_circle.jpg

Perhaps, you are like me: You have always had a desire to beat on a drum. It looks like it would feel good.  And it’s something cool people do.  Indeed, it is difficult to pass by a drum without engaging.  It’s tribal; it’s primitive and innate; our heartbeat is the universal rhythm we all share.

So you seek out a drum circle - with lots of percussion instruments and different sorts of drums.  Someone starts a deep bass beat, others follow, you listen, you jump in and the entrainment begins.  Somehow this has got to be good for me, you think. 

And it is!

One session of drumming can improve your immune system, according to Dr. Barry Bittman, whose research group was responsible for the break-through work on the benefits of laughter on the immune system (remember Patch Adams?).

According to the study, “both neuroendocrine and immuno- logic alterations were found in drumming subjects following this composite intervention compared with controls. These changes appear to be immunoenhancing (increased DHEA-to-cortisol ratios, increased NK cell activity, and increased LAK cell activity)."

So what does this mean?  Beating on a drum just makes us feel better on the outside and on the inside.

For the last five years, Bongo Boys Music School in Castleton offers community drum circles every Thursday night, no experience needed.  An incredible collection of cool shakers, cow bells, drums and more drums are available for you to find your individual beat and join in with the group.

“I love seeing people let down their guard and just be in the rhythm, “says Lisa Dehnke, Director of Bongo Boy’s Recreational Center. “ I love to feel and share everyone’s rhythm.  It’s just fun.  I love to see happy faces.”

The Eiteljorg offers several drumming opportunities as well. On May 12  and May 26  from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm, Teresa Webb shares her talents through programs featuring Native American stories and drumming.  You can make your own personal drum at the Eiteljorg on May 13, 2012 with Tony Showa. Choose from a 12” maple frame with a deer hide for $65 or a 15” maple frame with a elk hide for $120.  Call 317-275-1310 to register and get more information.

Locally, the Irvington Wellness Center will be hosting 2 drum circles in the neighborhood in next several weeks.  Lisa Dehnke, from Bongo Boys will be the guest facilitator - The dates are Sunday May 20 from 5:00 pm to 6:00pm and Friday June 1 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The special introductory price is $2.00 per person and $5.00 per family.  You are welcome to bring your own drum or use one that is provided.
