Inspired by the body percussion pieces in Rhythmische Übung, by Gunild Keetman, particularly #33 and #34 for patting and clapping, Roger Sams has written a BP/UTP Lesson Part 1, a body percussion canon for your mid to upper elementary students that will transfer nicely to untuned percussion instruments in Part 2. In Part 1, Roger models a kinesthetically-based process for teaching the piece through movement and active listening. (In the film, Roger says incorrect numbers.)
This lesson will take a couple of classes to get through. We think your students are going to enjoy this one. Have some fun!
