Our Program Director, Michael Alba being a professional Musician, Drummer, A graduate of Los Angeles Music Academy, Musical Director and a passionate Educator, Firmly Believes in the power of Drumming, The enchanting effect of rhythm and its contagious energy. Every person has a built-in rhythm in our bodies and this is through our Heartbeats.
The unique rhythmical throbbing of our hearts defines each person’s ability to create and express their language in rhythm through an instrument. Just by using their hands and feet they can easily follow a beat. After all, Rhythm is the heartbeat of Music, And Drumming brings the heartbeat to Rhythm.
We in AIM Academy are positive and confident that by bringing this Holistic method to our clients, they will discover and appreciate not only the rhythm and Coordination aspect of music but the Healing and Joy behind it as well. That being said, a big portion of our goal as a company also is to impart them a healthy camaraderie, musicianship and a progressive and healthy lifestyle.

Drumming is a great workout for the brain and actually can make you smarter. Research shows that the physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the brain actually synchronizes the Logical Left & Intuitive Right Hemispheres showing that you access your entire brain.
Drumming also appears to synchronize the lower areas of the brain (non-verbal) with the frontal cortex (language & reasoning)
Drumming can release negative feelings. The act of drumming can serve as a form of self-expression.
You can literally drum-out your feelings.
When held, negative emotions can form energy blockages.
The physical stimulation of hitting the drums can help remove those blockages.
Drumming has even been used therapeutically to help People (addicts) deal with their emotions.
Drumming allows personal transformation and it stimulates creative expression and a chance to get to self-express, the equivalent of talk therapy.
The Sound of drumming generates new NEURONAL CONNECTIONS in all parts of the brain.
This leads to a deeper sense of self-awareness.
Drumming may be a powerful tool in helping retrain the brains of people who have some level of damage or impairment,
such as with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) orParkinson’s.
Finally Drumming can induce a natural “High” by increasing Alpha brain waves.
When the Brain changes from the Beta waves (concentration) to Alpha waves, you feel calm and relaxed.
As such, Alpha waves can also produce feelings of well-being and even Euphoria,
which may help people who suffer from mental illness, such as depression and anxiety.
