My Students

I teach 700+ 2nd and 3rd graders each week in music. We are a rural, Title I school with a lot of aspirations! Over half our school population receives free or reduced lunch. I want to be able to expose my students to a variety of different classroom instruments to expand their musical knowledge.

My students live in a small town with BIG dreams!

We are blessed with a wonderful music program throughout our district and I want to continue challenging our students through music education.

My Project

We received a donation of drumsticks but are still in need of some other supplies to aid us in our bucket drumming endeavor. My students will use the silicone mats on top of their bucket drums to help dampen the sound of the drums. They will also help the lifespan of the buckets, by adding a layer of silicone on top of the plastic drum top.

The bucket drumming lesson book is filled with great lessons and play along songs specifically designed for bucket drums.

This will allow us to utilize our buckets more often and will give us a lot of material to use with our bucket drums.
