Get in on the bucket drumming craze these holidays and make some noise! The bucket drumming movement is gathering momentum and this holiday workshop is for kids who are keen to work together to make some great group sounds..

Bucket drumming, also called street drumming, has a rich history in folk music. It involves drumming on plastic buckets and other objects to create melodies. Said to improve focus and reduce anxiety, bucket drumming is a good cardio workout and is increasingly being used by educators and teachers worldwide as a way to develop rhythm and melody. 

There will be a short performance on the last day of the course so that students will have the opportunity to show their friends and family their new sound and rhythm.

All buckets and drumsticks will be provided.
