World Music Drumming: New Ensembles and Songs
A Cross-Cultural Curricular Supplement
By Will Schmid
Book and CD
Grades 3 - 12
The "red book" and a supplement to the World Music Drumming curriculum, this book expands the drumming spectrum to include new culture areas and contemporary drumming styles. All pieces and songs have been kid-tested by grades 3-12. Each piece gives the written notation of each part, related CD track, learning sequence, notes on singing the suggested song that combines well with the percussion piece, notation of the vocal parts (some also give chord letters), supplementary strategies, and teaching tips. The included CD provides a model and can be used for playalongs.
