Sound Shape Playbook
Drumming Games & Other Music Activities for Percussion
By Lynn Kleiner and Christine Stevens
Book and CD 
44 pages
All ages (3 to adult)

22 activities and games for all ages, to infuse your groups with color, rhythm, and fun. Each activity gives a description, list of materials needed, directions for set-up, teaching suggestions, and extension ideas. Learn drum techniques and the many sounds you can make on Remo Sound Shapes, as well as learning fun activities and rhythm games for other hand drums, too.

Includes a play-along CD featuring activity songs, and also groove-starter tracks, drumming grooves performed by REMO artists that will get group jamming immediately. Mixed with a strong bell and bass drum, these grooves can be used for many activities where movement and creative jamming are involved. Use the CD to learn the songs and activities in the book, to practice personal drumming skills, to provide a rhythm track to enhance movement activities, and to provide a groove starter for drumming along.
