All Ages (Kindergarten through adult)
Whether you are a beginner, part-time jam artist, or seasoned musician, the activities in this book will give you hours of new ways to groove and play rhythms with others.
The activities use easy-to-find instruments: egg shakers, drum sticks, Boomwhackers, and Remo Sound Shapes. The activities are perfect for use in team building and music therapy sessions, classroom learning and for conference energizers. Simple techniques for immediate rhythm creation are given. An Activity Skills Index lists the primary skill focus for each activity, the challenge level and the appropriate age group for each activity. Ways to extend an activity or add challenges are given in the Variations section of each activity.
The downloadable MP3 files include 3 tracks that are Pulse tracks to assist in keeping a pulse. Track 4 is a simple jam track to play along with or add to the rhythm. Tracks 5 and 6 are vocal versions of "Bambale" and "Che Che Koolay" while tracks 7 and 8 are the instrumental versions.
