IMPORTANCE OF DRUM ERGONOMICS AND HOW DRUMMERS LIKE TRAVIS BARKER DESTROY THEIR BODIES WITH DRUMMING

While I was attending my weekly massages for my fibromyalgia, my massage therapist asked me what other activities I was doing in my daily life, aside from working at the computer and singing. I told him I was also a drummer. He asked me what … Continue reading IMPORTANCE OF DRUM ERGONOMICS AND HOW DRUMMERS LIKE TRAVIS BARKER DESTROY THEIR BODIES WITH DRUMMING

WHY NEGATIVE MUSIC SHOULD BE AVOIDED BY PEOPLE THAT SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION

For most of my adolescence I suffered from social anxiety and depression, my main escape was music. 

In itself music is a wonderful thing created to heal the soul and make a person feel good. The problem starts when music is created in an unnatural way (using the wrong frequency of A=440hz instead of the natural healing A=432hz) and when its used to promote negativity.

As a teenager in the early 2000s I grew up mostly listening to Rap music and Rock music (Grunge and Nu-Metal). 

My two favorite artists were Eminem and the band Nirvana, or better yet the singer Kurt Cobain.

Disclaimer: Since these two artists are considered to be like Gods from their fans, I want to say that, I acknowledge the talent both these artists have, and they were great songwriters, but I am really saddened by the way they used their talents, and therefore I cannot write too many positive opinions about their lyrics, especially.

I was around 9-10 years old when I first heard “In The End” by Linkin Park, I immediately fell in love with the song and the band. Throughout my adolescence while dealing with depression and social anxiety I always turned to music for comfort. Linkin Park played a really important role in that. Even though their lyrics weren’t always positive, and weren’t really giving me solutions on how to fight my depression, I can say they were a big part of my life. 

I mainly learnt to sing through Chester Bennington’s powerful rock choruses, I knew their songs back to back and had sung them thousands of times. Needless to say I was really sad when I heard of the tragic end of Chester…….may he rest in peace.

But one positive thing came out of all this, it brought more awareness on a really important issue, suicide
