Feel the Beat: Empowering Students with the Joy of Percussion

Bucketeers uses an innovative color-coded system applied to five-gallon buckets to allow children to learn & experience the art of percussion. Special multi-rod drumsticks help keep the volume down. Benefits include forging a foundation in rhythm, playing with a steady pulse, learning a variety of patterns, participating in collaborative movement activities, developing hand-eye coordination, and building self-discipline and attentional focus. Students play along with a diverse set of music: children’s, pop, rock, jazz, and multi-genre songs in several languages incorporating beats and patterns from around the world. Each class doubles as a rehearsal building towards an end-of-semester performance in front of friends and family.

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
