The Trash Drums name relates to the use of common buckets, household and similar items as percussion instruments instead of using expensive name brand instruments, to not only reduce costs but also eliminate perceptions that music is elite or “only for those who are gifted”.
Trash Drums was created to facilitate group and classroom needs to have accessible, informative and interactive musical tuition. The course is tailored to the age and ability of the participants as well as any required syllabus requirement and can be run just about anywhere banging some drums can happen.
Music is for everyone and Trash Drums embodies this to its core.
Participants gain confidence and their knowledge grows through the course until a showcase performance illustrates for all, the dynamic element rhythm plays in music and our lives.
