Practical Session 2/3 Update - France

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

However, on the basis of official and local advice we are cancelling the postponed Session 2 & Session 3 Practical exams scheduled for November - December. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades internationally and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

Learn to play some great tunes with just a bucket!

Mr Drum’s Bucket Drumming

Phil McPharlane, or Mr Drum as he’s affectionately known, has produced several tutorial-styled videos to teach newcomers bucket drumming.

In each of his tutorials, Mr Drum gives viewers the basic rhythm and beats to perform a well-known song using only two drum-sticks (although woods spoons work just as well) and a plastic bucket.

The 8-part series teaches viewers how to play ‘We Will Rock You‘ by Queen, ‘Billie Jean‘ by Michael Jackson and ‘Yellow‘ by Coldplay – among other hits. By the end of this series you will have accomplished the basics of bucket drumming.
