positive mindful drumming
Drum United has developed the Positive Mindful Drumming program for educational, well-being, creative and social purposes and is available here as an online tutorial course (E-learning). It's designed to improve your well-being, develop your growth mindset and enhance your musical and rhythmical skills as a new or improving drummer. You can view a free sample of the course at the end of this page, and enrol at anytime via the safe and secure payment method.
This program is suitable for all ages and is available online for everyone, everywhere. We've lovingly developed, designed, filmed and produced the program to suit all levels from beginner to advanced - those that never imagined playing drums, to the musically gifted.
Its a multi-disciplinary concept which uses positive mnemonics to learn and remember rhythms taught on hand-drums, on bongos, with sticks, household objects and as body percussion - so you don't even need a drum.
The program uses mnemonics and mantra (a linguistic pattern) which are a way of anchoring positive thoughts and affirmations. The physicality of tapping the rhythms help you to feel grounded and mentally well-balanced while drumming releases endorphins which makes you feel good. Together, the repetition of playing the rhythms and saying the mantra out loud or focusing on the mantra as your inner voice form a great program to meditate on and help develop mindfulness and a growth mindset.
The great news is that Drum United is a Social Enterprise and additional revenue is used to further our goals and increase our social impact. So, by enrolling onto our courses you'll be helping us to provide more drumming events in a variety of communities and you, your family and friends can join us and many more like-minded people at upcoming events.

I was lucky enough to learn the rudiments of drumming at the age of 9 and have since had over 30 years of enjoyment playing drums and percussion. I've first hand experience of the benefits and rewards drumming as therapy has to offer. I'd love to share with you the huge rewards of drumming and I strongly believe in the potential for everyone everywhere to develop their creative and transferable skills through drumming whilst improving their outlook and growth mindset.
I established and incorporated Drum United as a Social Enterprise back in 2012 and since then I've led the development and production of the ‘positive mindful drumming’ program. This now includes the LiveStream (webcasting live from the UK, 3 times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays). The monthly subscription also gives you access to recorded lessons from the previous week and online resources for you to use at a time that suits your timetable.
