Rhythm Read and Play
Activities for Classroom Instruments
By Tom Anderson 
Book and CD
32 pages
For grades 1-6

Actively involve students with easy-to-follow read and play parts to accompany familiar folk songs, marches, spirituals, holiday favorites and more. More advanced readers play from musical notation, while beginning readers follow instrument pictures.

For added play-along fun, rehearse with the enclosed CD demonstration tracks when learning the parts, and then use the motivating accompaniment tracks when you are ready to perform! Perfect for classroom or stage, these 14 songs will provide percussion fun throughout the year. For extra value, all the written music is reproducible and five songs offer singer parts. 

Instruments used: Drums (hand drum, congas, bongos), Metals (triangle, finger cymbals), claves, woodblock, guiro, maracas, and rhythm sticks.
