Body Jammin'A Rhythm Facilitator's Guide to Portable Percussion By Dave Holland Book and DVD Upper elementary and upThis book is designed to bring more interaction, connection and joy to any group rhythm-making activity. In the Let's Explore section you will explore and practice the individual body percussion sounds. Holland uses a rhythmic notation for notating rhythms.Â Melodies are notated on the staff. For multi-timral parts, he uses western notation with each body percussion sound assigned a line or space on the staff with its own note style.
In the Let's Jam section there are several performance pieces with accompanying songs for ensemble play. The activities in the Let's Play section are designed to infuse creative play, experiential learning and fun into the rhythm-making experience. At the end of each of these Let's Play activities, individual,Â group and musical outcomes are listed. The DVD shows demonstrations of all of the techniques, ensembles and activities in the book.Â Contents LET'S EXPLORE!
