Drumming Workshop with Jared Underwood

Duration: 1 hour
Finished 28 June 2021
Sydney Observatory

Award-winning musician and composer Jared Underwood will deliver an energetic bucket-drumming workshop that encourages young percussionists to explore rhythm and create their own music.

Participants will learn they don’t need a full kit, as they can drum using a bucket, box or even their own lap.

Jared will teach participants a few popular drum rudiments ― small patterns of beats that make up the fundamentals of more complex drumming patterns ― before demonstrating an improvised drum solo and leading interactive games.

Participants will learn to improvise their own rhythmic soundscape, and the workshop will conclude with the group playing energetic rhythmic beats together in a bucket-drumming circle.

This workshop is recommended for ages 9–12 years. All equipment will be provided. The event is free, but bookings are essential. Please note parents may not attend this workshop.
