Gear4music GD-1 Drum Kit Used As Medical Treatment
A new scheme being trialled by the government allows people suffering with long-term health problems to take control of the money the NHS spends on their treatment.
Alex has suffered a stroke which affected his sight, mental health and movement and he uses the drum kit to aid his recovery.
Playing any musical instrument has been shown to stimulate the brain and the drums are especially beneficial for co-ordination and movement.
Alex now has a weekly drum lesson instead of a weekly physiotherapy appointment which encourages him to do more and gives him a great way to work on his own recovery at home.
The scheme is due to be rolled out in the whole of England during the next two years.
