Yes, this photograph captured me as a drummer boy at the age of 8 :)
Read more about why as child I was motivated to start playing drums here.
Here you can listen to some sound and music tracks I created that may help you relax and release tension while listening in your personal environment.
Please use a head set for listening.
SOUND AND MUSIC IN DAILY LIFE
Music enhances your life experience, whether by simply listening to it or by being involved in rhythmic exercise or expression. Become aware how you can use music and rhythm (or silence) for setting different moods, as a mode for energising or relaxation to support you through daily activities and routines.
Rhythm helps to release stress and to reconnect to your soul being. Rhythmic exercises are great for kids and adults to retreat from daily chores to relax, enhance focus and concentration,
release stress and to energise.
Research has presented convincing evidence that active involvement in music and rhythm and the exposure to natural sound enhances focus and concentration levels in children, while supporting healthy brain development and learning capabilities.
Music influences our mood; we make choices to listen to music that either reflects our mood (like feeling happy or sad) or changes our mood from a sad state into a more positive state, from a stressful state into a more relaxed state or makes us feel energised. We can make a choice to address our state of mind by tuning in to music supporting your intention for change.
"At the root of all power and motion, there is music and rhythm, the play of patterned frequencies against the matrix of time.
We know that every particle in the physical universe takes its characteristics from the pitch and pattern and overtones of its particular frequencies, its singing. Before we make music, music makes us."
