Looking for something fresh and new in your music class? Bandology is delighted to offer a new series of music workshops focused on simple percussion instruments.
Our bucket drumming and boomwhacker workshops are suitable for grades 2-12 and are run by percussionists and music instructors. We can tweak our workshops to fit your curriculum as needed.
We offer in-person music workshops in the GTA west area and online workshops across the country.
No prior instrument knowledge is necessary, just a sense of adventure and a willingness to try something new.
These workshops are COVID-safe, as there is no blowing and participants can wear a mask.
Enjoy learning the basics of rhythm and melody through bucket drumming (actual buckets with real drumsticks). Learn how to hold drumsticks and play different patterns on the buckets.
Using boomwhackers, you’ll review notes while learning the basics of rhythm and melody, and play along to songs with the boomwhackers.
We’ll also lead you through some body percussion to get your students energized and excited!
Drumline is also an option for high school student groups.
Sandy, Lucas and the Bandology team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They offered clear and timely communication, accommodating our schools schedule and needs. After a collaborative meeting, the Bandology team developed a program to suit the timeframe and current level of achievement of my grade 6-8 students. Seeing Sandy and Lucas run virtual bucket drumming workshops for five of my classes allowed me to appreciate their flexibility, adaptability and dedication to meeting the specific needs of each group they engage with. Thanks Bandology!

Music workshops are typically one hour from start to finish, but we also offer longer workshops upon request. We offer in-person workshops for the GTA west area and virtual workshops via Zoom across Canada.
The cost of the music workshops are based on number of participants for in-person or a flat rate for online workshops. Please email us now at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us the number of participants, your proposed date and the location of the workshop.
We can’t wait to make music with you!!!
