This class explores the unique timbres and colors of many ordinary objects that have become elemental in modern percussion compositions. I will teach how to bang on things with purpose. It's so fun to jam out on buckets, make a drumset out of pots and pans, and make beautiful music with bottles. Children will learn how to play these objects to obtain the best sound possible and how to combine different objects to create their own drumsets. This is a great way to learn how to play the drums without having to spend a lot of money.
We will learn different beat patterns from around the world while focusing on four major object groups: cans, buckets, glassware and bottles, and pots.
This class is ideal for elementary and middle school students who are interested in drumming, percussion or music in general. Participants will learn creativity and teamwork skills that will be invaluable in all areas of life.
