This CD coordinates with the African Songs and Rhythms for Children book (item 802200, available separately). It is a perfect aid for teachers who are unfamiliar with African songs and rhythms but who wish to expose their students to these new dimensions in music education.

It emphasizes the close relationship between the traditional African approach to teaching music and the Orff Schulwerk method. The exercises help build the student's sense of rhythm and coordination.
