A World of Rhythms for Drums, Pitched Percussion and More by Mark Burrows.
29 diverse jam pieces, based on rhythm patterns from around the globe, use a variety of percussion, plus occasional Boomwhackers, found objects, and Orff instruments. Meaningful speech parts allow for a teaching process connecting speech to body percussion to playing, and performance tips make them concert-ready.
Strengthen students' rhythm skills, enliven drum circles, or offer a change of pace in a choir concert. Jams celebrate cultures of Africa, Indonesia, Brazil, Ireland, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, India, USA & more. Jams, and a world map, are reproducible. For Gr. 2-6.
