Give Me a Groove
18 Grooves for Percussion with Suggested Melodies for Recorder
By Mark Shelton
Book and Enhanced CD
44 pages
Grades 3 - 6

Give Me a Groove presents 18 grooves, from the waltz to rock 'n roll, along with advice on how to make them groove in your music classroom. Percussionist Mark Shelton has broken down and reconfigured basic drum set patterns for classroom instruments, so you can teach the groove and then students can eventually create their own arrangements. Each groove includes teaching instructions, substitution instrument options, and a suggested melody written specifically with the abilities of elementary recorder players in mind. Permission is given to photocopy the student activities.

A performance/accompaniment Enhanced CD with Printable Resources is included.
