Over the last few years, bucket bands have grown greatly in popularity. Percussion is an ideal way to teach rhythmic concepts and this low-cost percussion ensemble is a great way to feel the joy of group performance without breaking your budget.
This unique new product by John Riggio and Paul Jennings is designed for players just beyond beginners, though some or all players can easily adapt the included parts.
Every selection features rhythm sticks, though the tracks are designed to work with just buckets, or any combination of the parts provided. These change from tune to tune and include Boomwhackers®, ukulele, cowbell, shaker, guiro, and more.

Convenience Combo Kits
An exciting new format that gives you the best of both worlds!
So what is a Convenience Combo Kit? It is a kit that gives you the best of both worlds: a Teacher's Handbook, a CD, and the downloadable version of the music and recordings as PDFs and MP3s. Read more about this exciting option. >>
This unique format gives you the convenience of downloadable products, but with the feel and usability of real books and CDs as well.
We are now pleased to be offering many of our products with this option. So when you come to our web site, you will find that many products give you three options:
Kit (our traditional kit with a Teacher's Handbook and a P/A CD)
Downloadable Kit (with PDFs and MP3s)
Convenience Combo Kit (Teacher's Handbook, CD, as well as PDFs and MP3s)
These new kits are just a bit more expensive than regular kits, but they give you the convenience of being able to print parts from your computer instead of standing at the photocopier for eons.
Buy online or with a purchase order - As with our downloadable kits, you can buy them at our web site and immediately download the files. We will ship the book and CD soon thereafter. Or you can order by phone, fax, or mail and we will ship you the product and send a link to your e-mail address for the downloadable components.
