Body Language, Drumming, & The Brain with Mark Bowden

What does studying body language and the brain have to do with drumming? It has EVERYTHING to do with it! LTR (life through rhythm) is about studying outside disciplines to get better at your main discipline. If you want to improve your golf game, steal from cooking. If you want to improve your martial arts, steal from calligraphy, and so on. In this case, we are seeing drumming as A LANGUAGE, and our body expression paired with knowing how our brain is wired from eons of evolution will empower us greatly.


In this session I had the opportunity to hang out with one of my favorite people, Mark Bowden! He is one of the worlds top experts on body language and the brain, and also has an awesome energy and sense of humour. We dig deep into these concepts in ways that will both help you in your everyday life, and infuse every note you play on the drums with more of YOU. At the end of the podcast we analyzed the body language of some of the most iconic drummers of all time to get further inside their minds and approach. This is definitely insider information that will give you an edge, so watch it 10X and literally ’embody’ the learning. (Embody: to BECOME a part of your body) Feel these body language and brain lessons to absorb them into your own game of life and drumming!
