Singh Performance Center
Students will learn the basics of bucket drumming, explore the different types of sounds that can be created by hitting various areas of the bucket, proper playing technique, and how to read and play rhythms. Students will play for nearly the entire class time with short breaks to rest hands, ask questions, and discuss what they have played. The workshop consists of 8 lessons with a performance at the ValleyCAST Hope Day event on May 1, 2024.
