Drumming is a natural instinct. Absent an instrument, we’ll improvise, drumming our hands on our legs or a tabletop. Many children have enjoyed drumming on an oatmeal box with a wooden spoon or raising a racket banging a spoon on the bottom of a pan. Making a joyful noise, expressing emotions, engaging in scientific inquiry, exploring acoustics, children drumming are doing all this and more. Drumming improves coordination and develops auditory discrimination, cognitive, motor, musical, and social skills.
