No matter what the melodic or harmonic context of music from various cultures might be, the uniting thread that can be traced throughout all music is rhythm. Rhythms of the World teaches students to aurally identify rhythm patterns and instruments from Africa, India, Cuba and Brazil, while also providing a geographical, historical and cultural perspective. Included in the comprehensive kit are a teacher’s guide, reproducible student pages, a CD with over 80 authentic music examples, Vocabulary Flash Cards and two challenging games for reinforcing concepts – Country Quest Sound Sequences and Rhythms of the World for 100.
For Grades 5-8.
