This exciting collection of mallet percussion activities by master teacher Artie Almeida will energize your classroom. Mallet Madness utilizes songs, poems, music-to-literature connections, and reproducible flashcards to promote learning the concepts of beat, rhythm, melody, harmony, form and expressiveness. Its unique rotation system allows your students to play all of the mallet percussion instruments in your classroom, as well as many of the non-pitched instruments. Suggestions for adapting the activities for use in classrooms with few or even no mallet instruments are also included. Whiteboard versions of many of the lessons are now available. Choose between Promethean or SMART software, and the rest is done for you. The whiteboard application brings the original lessons to life through the use of colorful visuals and interactive tutorials and quizzes not found in the print edition. PowerPoint slides are provided in case you don't have a whiteboard.
