On the 21st June 2021 we see the return of Make Music Day!

We would like you to join us in celebrating this occasion with a performance of a newly commissioned piece, written by Tim Brain from Louder than Life. This piece of music is called Bucket Beats.

This year we are teaming up with Louder than Life and NYMAZ to offer a performance like no other. Whether you stream us from the classroom, school hall, school field or your home you will be able to join us for a cacophony of Bucket Beats! This opportunity can be streamed into any location across the county.

Please note this opportunity is for Norfolk schools and students only.


What you need

This new piece is designed to deliver a music piece created around rhythmic beats that can be played on any sized bucket or plastic bowl. The resources can be accessed at school via the Norfolk Music Hub tab on Charanga or set as homework challenges for your young people to engage with at home via Yumu Charanga.

Who is this project aimed at?

This project is accessible to all primary students.

When are the resources available?

Resources will be available from the 4th May for you to practice leading up to the event on the Norfolk Music Hub tab of Charanga.

Will there be a CPD to assist teachers in using the resources?

Yes, this will take place on Thursday 6th May from 4.15pm-5pm. Please tick the box when registering for this project if you would like to attend the CPD.

How will I receive the link to access the live stream and join in with the live premier performance of Bucket Beats?

48 hours prior to the event you will be sent a private YouTube link to the live streamed which will be hosted on NYMAZ’s Connect Resound YouTube channel. Please ensure you test this link when it arrives to ensure your schools security settings allow access.

What will happen on the day?

At 1.45pm on Monday 21st June, 2021 join thousands of young people from across Norfolk in this premiere performance streamed live. This live stream will run from 1.45pm-2.30pm.
