Christmas Bucket Drumming

In this module, we’ll include Bucket Drumming selections for Holiday lessons or performances Bucket Drumming is fun and has lots of audience appeal. We’ll include some demonstrations of bucket drumming under black lights, so you can view how to create a unique performance for virtual concerts.

Teaching suggestion: Teach one section at a time.  Scroll through video so you can practice each section without the music. When students are successful, play along with the music.  Remember that you can adjust tempo by selecting the “gear” wheel.
