Philly Beat Alliance
Drumming together while we are apart! This virtual class will introduce basic drumming techniques and music perception, as well as aural recognition. Our 6 week class will culminate in the performance bucket-drumming piece. All created pieces will be recorded and edited to make a multi-screen video for the students to keep.
Bucket drumming provides a unique, fun learning environment for children. It allows them to:
Collaborate while developing self-expression
Learn to play a variety of rhythms using buckets, sticks, plastic cups, tambourines, guiros, and shakers
Develop hand-eye and foot-eye coordination
Increase self-discipline and active listening
Gain an understanding of melody and syllables
Provide a steady beat/pulse along with recorded music (both pop and children’s music)
Perform in front of an audience
