by Sandy Lantz and Gretchen Wahlberg.
The 20 pieces in this book are sequential drumming pieces for hand drums, barrel drums, tubanos, congas, and small percussion. You’ll find everything from easy hand drum pieces using the echo process, to show stoppers with black light beaters or sock mallets circling and beating on giant barrel drums!
All of these pieces are tried and true, used many times with great success with children and in Level courses, workshops, and conference sessions. Each piece comes with teaching suggestions that will start your creative juices flowing.
"Teaching suggestions and form are merely ways for you to begin. As you play with the pieces and teaching processes, you and your students will discover new ways of teaching and learning within your own classroom percussion ensembles. In addition, student feedback can be a phenomenal way to create new and exciting extensions to these pieces. We encourage you to continuously ìthink outside the boxî and to give your students the poetic license to do the same."
