The Body Electric celebrates the music inside us while exploring ways to express this music using the greatest instruments of all, our bodies. This handy reference introduces a self-contained instrumentarium that is convenient, inexpensive, physical, adaptable, educational and fun. An overview of and targeted examples for a variety of body, vocal and mouth sounds are included along with songs that employ various combinations of all the introduced sounds. Reproducible student parts are included along with a CD of imaginative accompaniment soundscapes. This is a great resource to teach the basics and to help students internalize rhythmic concepts.
