Just Jams
A World of Rhythms for Drums, Pitched Percussion and More
By Mark Burrows
48 pages
Grades 2 - 6

A collection of accessible jams that can be used to strengthen students' rhythm skills in drum circles or as a change of pace in a choir concert or other performance. Meaningful speech patterns are used to lead from speech to body percussion to playing. Suggestions for developing each jam into a performance piece are also included. 

The jams celebrate the cultures of Brazil, Cuba, Japan, West Africa, Middle East, India, Ireland, Indonesia and the United States. There are also world rhythms and instrumentation, featuring jams for an Orff instrumentarium, Boomwhackers and sound effects in addition to those for drums and non-pitched percussion.
