Transcript of Bucket Drumming

Welcome to Bucket Drumming


Ms. Wood!!!! What is Bucket Drumming? The art of creating music while using buckets
We will use 3 sizes of buckets to create a variety of different rhythms
The different sizes will create higher and lower pitches What Do I Call THAT Bucket? The largest bucket (that looks like a garbage can) is the BASS bucket
The middle sized bucket is called the ALTO bucket
The smallest bucket (most say RONA) are called the SOPRANO bucket Peter Rabbit The Bucket Drummer Peter Rabbit The Bucket Drummer in TORONTO? Why Bucket Drumming? Obviously, bucket drums can be used to explore and experiment with different sounds.
What element of music do you think we'll explore? We will mostly explore the Element of RHYTHM when using the bucket drums.

Remember rhythm is: the pattern of long and short sounds! How Do We Play a Bucket Drum? We will use either 1 or 2 drum sticks to strike the drums while playing.

We produce sounds by either striking the Centre, Rim, Side or Stick Click Where to Strike the Drum? Centre Side Rim(where the side and top meet each other) Where Do You Find Bucket Drumming? At Cheyne we practice bucket drumming in the classroom but we also have an extra curricular bucket drumming group if you are interested in joining.

Bucket drumming has a rich history of being used as a folk instrument. Remember, folk means "of the people", in street performances and as performance art pieces. What Do We Need To Know? Respect the buckets.

Drum sticks are to be used for hitting ONLY the drums and not people.

Drum sticks are for drumming and not sword fighting, I know its tempting.

Buckets are not to be worn on your head - carry them only!

Do not stand in or on any bucket. If a bucket has a hole in it, please let Ms. Wood know right away so that we can safely remove the bucket. Please don't try to put sticks in the damaged buckets, you may hurt yourself.

Accidents DO happen so please inform Ms. Wood IMMEDIATELY if a bucket or stick breaks because they could cause injuries to you or somebody else.

SAFETY FIRST! A few things to make the class go smoother Only select buckets when asked to.
Only play when asked to do so - the longer it takes you to stop, the less we will get done and I have some exciting things planned that you do not want to miss out on!
Failure to stop playing when asked will result in you only being able to participate by clapping. That's no fun! Stick Distribution Ms. Wood will pass out the sticks once everybody has a bucket. You may practice a bit until everybody has a set of stick but when I put my hands up - you must stop playing and put your sticks on your drum.

Remember: Bucket drumming is a PRIVILEGE not a right. Stick Click
