Jam in the Park – Bucket Beats
CANCELLED due to low enrollment

Bucket drumming is a style of music which involves drumming on plastic buckets and other objects to create rhythmic beats and music. Creating music using simple, everyday objects, is a fun way to encourage youth to find music in things around them. In these sessions, participants will learn to play alongside popular songs, create music and beats of their own, and participate in a performance during the last session. Pre-registration is required - last day/time to register is May 21 at 5:00pm. Participants must wear a mask.

Participants will be provided a bucket and drum sticks to use during the program. The group will meet at the basketball court at Freedom Park.
