In this video, I share a technique using syncopated rhythms you can use to improve your focus based on a technique I discovered when I was in music school. I play an example of this technique so you can see if it works for you.
In this video, I play complex rhythms for focus at a steady 9 beats-per-second tempo and a variable tempo between 9 and 10 beats-per-second. Play the rhythms quietly in the background as you do some focused work and discover which approach you prefer.

An adult client with ADD conducted an experiment: He compared two different doses of the stimulant medication Ritalin to his custom-made REI drumming music. I share his results in this video.
At the end of the video, you will find an example of the types of rhythms I use for focus. These are played on my Gonga drum. Play the rhythms quietly in the background as you do some focused work and see how it works for you.

In this video, I play my Gonga drum at about 8 beats per second to focus your brain. Though these rhythms use the same tempo as the Calm for Anxiety rhythms from a recent video, their complex structure will focus your nervous system – a sharp contrast from the musically variable rhythms needed to calm anxiety.
