Discover the drummer in you as Nat Aguilar shows you the ropes with a pair of sticks and a 5 gallon bucket! You will learn how to get the three basic sounds out of a bucket and explore different styles such as rock, latin, and DC’s own original style, GO-GO!  Other fun activities include using household items as percussion instruments. Come and explore the world of rhythm and sounds!

Nat Aguilar is a diverse percussionist from the Washington D.C. area.  He has played bucket drums as a street performer in Florida, Maryland, D.C., Pennsylvania, and New York.  Additionally he played a unique bucket drum and “found” percussion drum set with Florida artists Dish, and Buckets and Strings in the mid 2000’s.
