Feel the Beat: Empowering Students with the Joy of Percussion
Bucketeers In Action
Adaptable and Accessible: Bucketeers for All Students and Schedules
We mostly serve preschool through 5th grade students, but can also teach middle and high school. Bucketeers is available during the school day and as an after-school program. Classes are often held once a week and organized in sessions (several consecutive weeks of instruction). Session length varies depending on the needs of each school community.
NEW—One-time visits (assemblies) are also now available. Bucketeers instructors arrive in the morning and teach multiple classes per day. Over the course of several days or weeks, every child in the school can experience the joy of music
