Urban Bucket Brigade with Jaisson Taylor
May 25 @ 10:00 am – 10:45 am
Urban Bucket Brigade with Jaisson Taylor @ Kansas Children's Discovery Center

Jaisson Taylor brings this interactive and fun drumming workshop from the streets to the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center on Saturday, May 25 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Using recycled buckets and a rhythm, youth will learn about the role of music in various cultures and how those cultures lead to what you hear in the music of the streets today. Children will be introduced to the 26 rudiments of drumming and use various positions on the buckets to create a variety of sounds. Urban Bucket Brigade Bootcamp is unique in that there are no mistakes, the end is never as important as the means and the children are taught that they cannot fail. The ways to grip the sticks, the sounds that can be created, and the rhythms they can create are all their own and the possibilities are endless!

Regular admission applies, which is $9 for children and adults, $8 for seniors, and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members. Admission also lets you play all day at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center with over 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, plus a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.
