Bucket Drumming and Rhythm

2 Hour Experience at Your Home

Children will learn the basics of bucket drumming, and create their very own, signature bucket drumming rhythm during this pulsating experience. Using buckets, kids will experiment to see what types of sounds they can get their bucket to make, learn the 4 main sounds of bucket drumming, practice copycat rhythms, and work on musical notation using an anchor chart.

This experience will lay a musical foundation for kids, teaching them the difference between the beat and rhythm of a song. All of it will come together in the creation of a unique song or bucket drumming rhythm. The first of many, as children begin to build a repertoire!

This experience may include educational videos of professional bucket drumming, particularly if children are unfamiliar with this extraordinary musical technique and ability to make incredible sounds and rhythms from non-traditional instruments.

What Parents are Saying

We LOVED everything about Grasshopper! The customer service experience was exceptional! I felt like so much intentionality was taken to ensure that the activity would be both age appropriate and fun for my kids. Our experience leader was so easy going and chatted with the kids during the experience, and really took the time to engage and get to know them. We are definitely going to be using Grasshopper again! Thank you!

Grasshopper offered my daughter an opportunity to learn in a vibrant, fun setting that was continuously customized for her attention span and interests. Her Grasshopper teacher was fun, engaging and supremely personable. She took the time to get to know my daughter before diving into anything. I felt more than comfortable leaving my daughter in such capable hands…and love that she truly learned some new things from the experience. We will be using Grasshopper regularly to broaden her horizons and expose her to new concepts in a safe and compelling way. The icing on the cake is that the experience took place in our home, at a time that was convenient for us!

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.
