Bucket Drums

Rhythm is at the core of all music. No matter the genre of music or type of instrument, rhythm gives the notes life and direction. So it is no wonder why bucket drumming has been so successful in teaching music to kids.

Bucket Drumming, also called street drumming, is a style of music that involves drumming on plastic buckets and other objects to create melodies. The most common object used by bucket drummers are five-gallon plastic buckets, but other objects can be used, including glass bottles, pots, and pans. Bucket Drumming allows students the space to be creative, learn and improve rhythmic and melodic musical skills while giving students an excellent way to learn self-awareness, listening skills, coordination, cooperation, and patience. In addition, bucket drumming can help students feel safe to express negative emotions through the positive channel of drumming.
