The Dynamic Drummers Program

Every American knows about childhood obesity and the many dangers associated with it. It is becoming a national epidemic and sadly, the stats are still on the rise. Children just 9 and 10 years old are developing serious health issues like type 2 diabetes, respiratory illnesses and heart disease, and one of the leading causes is lack of exercise and an inactive lifestyle. With our advancing technology it has become far too easy for children to just sit in one place for hours at a time and have something to entertain them, like computer, television and video games. Obesity in children has increased 3x more than it was 30 years ago. In 1980 obesity in children, ages 6-11, was a mere 6.5% but by 2008 it increased to 19.6%. 25 million children are either overweight or obese and most of them will likely will be prone to joint problems, cancers, cardiovascular diseases, poor self esteem, and several other health, social, and psychological problems. Many experts believe that this current generation of children will be the first generation in American history to live shorter than their parents, but it doesn't have to be that way. Personally, coming from a heavy set family, keeping kids as healthy as possible is one of my goals in life. But being a music teacher doesn’t quite lend itself to the “active” aspect of my goals. Until now…

Our solution? Creating an elementary percussion and exercise program to help keep in shape and fight off the dangers associated with childhood obesity. Introducing “THE DYNAMIC DRUMMERS” PROGRAM!
