Learn simple drum rhythm for relaxation
One way to bring more silence into our day is through sound…yes sound. A steady, slow rhythmical beat on the Remo Bahia Buffalo drum can sooth, ease and quiet the mind. Research shows drumming at 80 beats per minute (BPM) or slower can reduce blood pressure and enhance a meditative state of mind.
You don’t have to be a hot shot drummer to gain the benefits of drumming. We are all rhythmical beings. Our first drum teacher was our Mother, (in the womb our ears are the first to develop) we listened to her heartbeat, the flow of blood rushing through her veins and her rhythmical breath. We were born drummers…
Easy drumming rhythms for silence
Music begins and ends in silence... By beginning our drumming practice in silence we are tuning in. Use this time to tune into an intention for the drumming session; it could be using a mantra, or affirmation, even balance a chakra. I have 18 affirmation cards that have a unique rhythm and poem for each affirmation that come with Energise Your Life with Rhythm, Music and Sound to help tune into an intention. Our thoughts are powerful and intention will help deepen and strengthen our drumming practice.
A simple and gentle drumbeat such as the heartbeat rhythm is easy to play and will help get you into flow of slowing down, relaxing, breathing deeply and into silence. Its soothing rhythm feels great no matter which way it’s played. The following are two ways the heartbeat rhythm can be played. And by playing along to music that has intention of love and peace it helps deepens the experience of our drumming practice. Music is powerful, it connects us to our emotions.
