Help me give my students the ability to create music! I have 30 buckets that the students love to use for bucket drumming.

My Students

Our students love to learn and our students LOVE music. They love creating, composing and listening to music. They are learning to appreciate all different genres of music; and how music and mood go together. Most of our students are from a very low socioeconomic background, so music education in our school is very important to them. Having the opportunity to perform and create is a very awesome thing for them. Most importantly, they are very, very, eager to learn.

My Project

ALL of our students will benefit from these drum mutes....but especially those with special needs. My students love composing and performing their rhythms using a set of classroom buckets we purchased a few years ago, BUT....never did I imagine how much the sound would not only affect the classrooms around us, but some of our special needs students in the music room.

Having these drum mutes would allow us to continue to make music together without affecting our students ears!

Students ability to create music using these drum mutes with our buckets. would greatly increase the effectiveness and the fun!
