18 Grooves for Percussion with suggested Melodies for Recorder by Mark Shelton.
Good grooves groove, and these simply do. Rock, swing, march, waltz, ballad, cajun 2-beat, celtic jig, polka, shuffle, zydeco, salsa and more, 18 in all. Turn your classroom into a well-oiled and fun-filled music-making machine!
Percussionist and educator Mark Shelton has broken down and reconfigured basic drum set patterns into grooves for classroom instruments. Each piece has a simple recorder melody, a mix of percussion to fit the style, and the CD helps catch the feeling. Once you get the groove, improvise over it with pitched or non-pitched instruments, or mix styles. Try playing a classical melody over a zydeco groove, or a folk tune over a rock beat.
