Description

Kids love to drum! No matter what instruments you have or don't have, Beatbox will let you experience a variety of world drumming styles as you accompany folk melodies and original songs. Create a basic rock pattern, recreate the sound of a mbira (thumb piano), form your own Haitian meringue ensemble, learn lively body percussion from the long tradition of hambone and step-dancing, or a lively fiddle tune with an Irish Bodhran. Experiment with call and response, layered ostinati, syncopation and improvisation; learn the Bamboo Tamboo from the Caribbean, the Highlife from West Africa, and how to make a drum talk! Helpful step-by-step learning is included, along with cross-cultural connections and historic fun facts, and suggestions on how to use the instruments you already have.

The price of this book includes a unique code that provides access to audio tracks online, for download or streaming. The tracks include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right - available exclusively from Hal Leonard. PDFs of songsheets and instrument parts are also available for projection or print.

Suggested for grades 2-5.
