Groovin' Styles for Classroom Instruments by Tom Anderson.

Your students will “riff” from the rafters with this collection written specifically for classroom instruments. Styles that groove like dixie, swing, bebop and hard bop are introduced in a sequence that reflects the overall history of jazz as well as levels of difficulty.

Scat singing is optional but can add a boppin' alternative to playing instruments so all students can participate. Basic drumming feels are included for even more play-along opportunities. Stand back and let the music-making begin. Swing, stomp and riff until everyone is in the groove!

Full scores and helpful teacher tips with optional unpitched percussion ostinatos are provided, along with digital access to play-along audio recordings and separate PDFs of the Orff instrument and recorder parts. Gr. 4-8.
