Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn to look, listen, and play short rhythm patterns.  Students will be introduced to reading rhythms by looking at musical notation.  At the end of each isolated rhythm practice, we will apply rhythms and play along with a real song.
I am a certified music teacher.  I am certified to teach all grades.  I have years of experience teaching music and literacy for all grades, P-12.  I have taught bucket drumming since 2017, and have taught it online since early 2020 on Outschool.
There is no homework for this class, but practice is encouraged!  A link to the class slides will be shared with parents after the first class.  You are free to open them, use them for practice, save them to a Google Drive, and print them if you choose to do so.
A bucket to hit and sticks to play with are required. Please have a bucket and not a pot or pan. You will thank me later! :)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will receive positive, ongoing feedback and customized instruction in class.  Additional feedback will be shared with parents each week through the Outschool messaging system.  Feedback will be personalized, easy to see, and easy to implement through practice.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There is no sensitive or mature content in this class.
The learner will learn how to access the class slides in class.  They will need to access the Outschool classroom and pull up the slides to practice each day.  The play-along videos they need for practice will be embedded in the class slides.  Everything they need is provided in the class slides.  Learners also have the option to watch their previous classes and play along with the class.  Printing is not an option provided, but parents who can devise a way to print slides are welcome to do so.

Freepik, various free websites for the musical notation images, teacher expertise/knowledge, and at least one bucket drumming video from YouTube per class are used as sources.  Class slides cite all of the sources on that slide.  Main sources are Elementary Groove 
Tracks and Bucket Drumming. net, which are used by paid subscription.
