PLANET JAMS Paperback & CD

Item No: 7088


by Mark Burrows

Each unit introduces a geographical region, describes its instruments, then has a musical example to both listen and play. Add the instruments and rhythms in layers with the patterns given. Let the kids compare what they hear when they play to what they hear on the CD and figure out how to adjust the sound—both of each instrument and the group—to sound more authentic.  Recordings on the CD feature authentic instruments.

All units are reproducible.  Mark also highlights any potentially challenging or notable aspects of a rhythm and gives suggestions for teaching it successfully. For Gr. 2-6. Paperback & CD.
