Mallet Madness
By Artie Almeida
Book
96 pages 

A collection of engaging units for using mallet instruments in the music classroom. Exciting collection of activities for mallet percussion instruments that will energize your classroom and promote learning in the concept areas of beat, rhythm, melody, harmony, form and expressive qualities through the use of songs, poems, music-to-literature connections and reproducible flashcards. Thanks to its unique rotation system, your students will play all the mallet percussion instruments in your classroom as well as many of the non-pitched instruments. Suggestions for adapting the activities for use in classrooms with few or even no mallet instruments are also given. Whether presented as a unit or spread over a semester or school year, Mallet Madness will fully engage students and you will love the skills and musicality they develop during these lessons.

My students really enjoyed all the activities in this book. The lessons are well planned.

"This series is great for general music classes as it is "hands-on" with the instruments while teaching elements of music such as beat, rhythm, melody, and much more. I love that it correlates with read aloud books!"
