ENMS students brought the fun during a "Blue Man Group" inspired music activity involving bucket drumming and paint. Teachers Brittany Nichols and Marie Michalopoulos found that bucket drums was a fun activity that could mark the end of students general music classes in 7th grade. To add a special element, she put watered down paints on each buckets, causing an exciting splash of color as students drummed. Students played along to popular tunes ranging from "We Will Rock You" to Fall Out Boy songs. 

 

"We hope that students walk away with fond memories from their general music classes and keep music in their lives," said Ms. Nichols. 

The teachers hope to continue this tradition for years to come.
