Funky Buckets (Drum Line) for Talent Show. :) Middle years doing their thing and well at that!

Great video of a version of #bucketdrumming and use of #rhythmsticks. Could even be fun to incorporate for #earthday!

Pice of Orff concert of my Orff group - BeatKaBand - Bum Trash Symphony I used to be in a group called Orffians. We never thought to use trash cans as xylophone stands and instruments.

I decided I wanted to change things up a bit. I purchased 10 Home Depot buckets. Added neon tape and then put the same neon tape on some rhythm sticks for flare and reinforcement. The kids sit on one bucket and play the other. It's a great change! The buckets create different sounds depending on where you hit them. It teaches kids to alternate/coordinate hands while reading and saying rhythms. I teach over 1,000 students ages K-5th. The drums were a hit! (Literally).

Drum circle: Teach a simple rhythm like this, allow each student to improv after the four beats of clapping.
