Nutcracker Bucket Drum Routine UPDATED and with VIDEO!
It is a teacher workday today and I am in the midst of chaos as I finalize my holiday concerts. We have just started Halloween music and are skipping over Thanksgiving as I have limited time to prepare concert music. My December is usually packed- two days before school is out for the Holiday Break I have 3 concerts! So we are rehearsing pretty much all of December and I have no extra time to squeeze in lessons on Nutcracker but I tend to do a little the first week back in January and of course, I play Nutcracker Music as students are entering and sing all my transitions to Nutcracker music and frequently add a movement piece into either the concert program or as a parent participation piece, which they LOVE!
I created a bucket drum routine several years ago:

Here is a nice listening map to the Nutcracker March:
And for all you heavy metal fans, I LOVE this one:
