Bucketeers Drumming
Wednesdays, 1/18 – 3/15, 2:25-3:00pm

Bucketeers is a mobile drum school and the brainchild of drummer/teacher/author Andy Ziker. Applying a color-coded system to five-gallon buckets allows children to learn the art of percussion as young as three years old. Bucket drumming provides a unique, fun learning environment for children. It allows them to collaborate while developing self-expression, learn to play a variety of rhythms patterns, and gain an understanding of melody and syllables.

3rd – 5th grades ONLY, $125

Brick Tech is happy to introduce our newest robotics class using LEGO’s Spike Prime® system. In this course students will build projects that will introduce robotics concepts while also learning to program with a scratch based programming language. Projects will include use of color, distance, and touch sensors.

There are no prerequisites for this class.
