A Toolbox Full of Found Sounds by Cathy Blair.

Head for the garage or hardware store for all the "instruments" you need to perform these imaginative found-sound pieces, in class or on stage. 

Employing what else but nuts and bolts and wrenches (monkey not required), along with washers, paint cans and rollers, hammers, Velcro, garden hose, and more, the rhythmic nature of this music will help build your students' sense of steady beat and improve their counting skills.

Amusing songs, reproducible lyric sheets, a piano score, accompaniment CD, and performance tips on playing plungers, paint cans, rubber hoses & more just add kids and the tool toccata begins! Gr. 4-7.

Paperback & CD
