Get in on the bucket drumming craze these holidays and make some noise! Children will learn the basics of drumming in a fun environment with a focus on playing together as a group to make a huge group sound.

The bucket drumming movement is gathering momentum throughout New Zealand and this holiday workshop is for kids who are keen to tap into their inner rhythm and work together to make some great sounds.

There will be a short performance at the last day of the course so that students will have the opportunity to show their friends and family their new sound and rhythm.

Bucket drumming, also called street drumming, has a rich history in folk music. It involves drumming on plastic buckets and other objects to create melodies. Said to improve focus and reduce anxiety, bucket drumming is a good cardio workout and is increasingly being used by educators and teachers worldwide as a way to develop rhythm and melody.

All buckets and drumsticks will be provided.

Ham or vegetarian lunchboxes ($10 per day) can be ordered when you pay for the course or pre-ordered each morning.

Tutor Demetrius Savai’inaea is a Samoan born, South Auckland raised music loving youth mentor. He has 15 years of experience in the music scene as a drummer and developed his bucket drumming programme to help kids break barriers, stripping back the hype and taking it back to having fun in a collaborative environment.
