Body Electric 2
A Symphony of Sounds for Body Percussion
By Mark Burrows
40 pages
Grades 2 - 6

A bass drum, a cello, a lion's roar, a dog's bark and a gamelan. What do these have in common? All of these sounds and many more can created using body percussion. Think of the possibilities. You can stomp with the whole foot or just with the heel. You can tap your toes or slide your foot across the floor. You can clap with flat palms or clap with cupped hands.

Now imagine alll the possibilities when you use vocal percussion and other mouth sounds. Combine body percussion with vocal percussion and mouth sounds and the possibilities are endless.

This Book 2 explores some of these possibilities in the form of grooves and other rhythm activities that are accessible, educational, and wildly fun. Suggested forms are provided for each, allowing you to extend them into performance pieces, perfect as a change of pace during any concert. And it's amazing how much learning is hidden in all this fun! From grammar to gamelan  and tone poems to tongue twisters, students will strengthen their listening skills, perform a variety of rhythms, and explore music and cross-curricular concepts.
