"Everyone gets some kind of release from hitting things, .........," says David Levine with the Percussion Marketing Council.

I can't agree with Mr. Levine here.  But that's just ME, personally.  He doesn't speak for ME on this one.

I'll agree with nearly any statements about studying drumming making one smarter though.

Hmmm... I'm not so sure that kids who play drums are more disciplined. That's what they'd like to think!!!! ;)

It's nice to see some evidence supporting my theory that everybody is a percussionist at heart. Although, I would like to see some comparisons to other musicians.

noteworthy aside: when i first scanned this section, i thought the post read, "dumming makes you smarter'

ba-dump-CRASH!


but without reading the article, i'd have to broadly agree. or at least say, it helps with neuron functioning overall.
The most wasted day of all is that on which you have not laughed.

FACT: Many school band programs in the USA choose their percussionists from students with a high grade point and/or IQ. In this case, students are already smart before they play drums/percussion.

I don't know if it makes them smarter, but it is a known fact that participating in new activities that challenge the brain definitely builds it up and makes it stronger. This would be a valid reason to change your set-up from time to time, or lead with your weak hand. Although you may not perform well with these changes, you are building new neural pathways in the brain ... and it's all good! Different activities build different parts of the brain.
