Learning Fundamentals with Boomwhackers and Other Instruments.
Experience steady beat, note and rest values, tempo, syncopation and more in a creative, fun way. The elements of rhythm are presented sequentially in a variety of learning exercises that precede the songs. Students practice these exercises on Boomwhackers and other classroom instruments and then play along with instructional tracks on the CD before applying the rhythm elements to the songs.
Each of the 8 original songs for voices and instruments comes with piano arrangements, reproducible singer and instrumental parts, reproducible rhythm activities and a performance/accompaniment CD.
All songs use the C Major Diatonic Scale set of Boomwhackers.
For grades 2-5.
