Games & Grooves For Bucket Band, Rhythm Sticks, And Lots Of Joyous Instruments
From Plank Road Publishingby John Riggio and Paul Jennings
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. Unlike some bucket band music, this is written with just one bucket part, intended to be performed on a small to medium-size bucket. If your ensemble has large/bass buckets, they can either play the written part or devise a more bass-like part to add.
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.
There are two basic types of tunes here, games and game-like tunes, and grooves. The games each stand on their own, and the grooves are short, repetitive, and fun to play, with many repeats. Some songs have multiple tempos to ease learning. And, as you may have learned with other music from Plank Road Publishing and Music K-8, we encourage and permit you to adapt all music to best serve your needs.
This unique collection includes:
- Grizzly Bear Groove
- Buckets Are Forever (A Secret Agent Groove)
- Grape Jelly Groove
- Divide & Echo
- Louder and Softer
- Rhythm Roundabout
- Bucket Band B-I-N-G-O
These tracks were produced by John Riggio, who brings you many of Plank Road's most popular works. All versions now available!
