Grades 2-6 * Creating a world percussion resource for use in an elementary music setting is a lot like giving a world tourfrom the space shuttle. The big picture is cool, but the details seem to go zooming by faster than the speed of sound. Mark Burrows has embraced that challenge and crafted this terrific collection, which includes units on West Africa, Brazil, Cuba, Spain, Middle East, India, Japan, North America and Samoa, as well as suggestions for making the most of the group percussion process. Each unit includes a brief overview of the geographical area; pictures and descriptions of several traditional percussion instruments; basic techniques for playing those instruments and rhythms; and a process for teaching the music example. Reproducible student parts and a CD featuring authentic instruments are included to help facilitate the lessons, and Mark utilizes speech and body percussion throughout, making world percussion accessible to elementary general music classes.
