Bucket Drumming Residency

Artist: Grooversity
Type: Residency
Art Form: Music
Grade Level: 4-12
Scheduling Request

Students will learn how rhythm, sound, and beats can be made from any surface. Using buckets, students will learn basic principals of ensemble drumming as well as polyrhythms. A culminating event will share the students’ progress.

Bucket Drumming can also be offered as a post-performance workshop.

Remote Learning Adaptation:  In live online workshops, students can replace buckets and drum sticks with household items such as  wooden spoons, pots and pans, or even pillows (just so they can learn beats and rythmns). If no homemade instruments can be found, students can participate using body percussion.

Length: 45 Minutes
Participant Limit: 15-20
