Drumming – Groups & Private Instruction

“The process of drumming engages both the linear, (the rational left) and the creative, (the intuitive right) sides of the brain. It integrates the non-verbal information from the lower brain structures into the frontal cortex and produces a feeling of insight, understanding, integration, certainty, conviction, and truth.Consequently, drumming is like a deep meditation.”

-Michael Clark, Drumatic Innovation
