My second event was a Drums Alive Certification training.
Drums Alive's mission is, "using rhythm as the source of inspiration to discover a new group fitness experience Drums Alive combine the benefits of a traditional physical fitness program with the brain affected benefits of music and rhythm. Drums Alive is a program that fosters a healthy balance physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially!"
Drums Alive is the only research based fitness program. The program has been proven to benefit individuals with dementia, Alzheimer's, social disabilities, mental disabilities, physical disabilities, as well as the "general" population. This program allows its participants to use almost all of their senses, visual watching the teacher & drums, auditory listening to the music and instructor, touch holding the sticks. Teaching Drums Alive has allowed me to see the benefits it can have on individuals. This training helped me to better understand how to cater to the population in the room. Drums alive can serve each group differently. I was able to learn how to adapt for different groups. It can be used to teach math and other subjects as well as work as a physical therapy for others.
