This collection of songs, play-along activities, listening activities, sound effect stories and composition activities will explore many of the possibilities of non-pitched percussion instruments. Songs are included to teach instrument rules and to help with the classroom management issues that may arise when playing instruments. Your younger students will love the simple play-alongs. Older students will enjoy relative note value activities with instruments (or tennis balls) and stick rhythms. Suggestions and reproducibles are included for assessment activities and the CD includes both performance and accompaniment tracks.
