Comments about Alfred World Beat Fun Book/CD:
I have been using Mr. Wajler's book and CD for over one year since he visited our school with his multicultural music program. My students actually ask if we are going to play rhythm instruments along with the CD from the book. The book also covers four of the musical styles that our students are responsible for in the Spring for our CATS Arts & Humanities state test. The lesson plans are easy to follow and apply in the classroom. If your school never hosted Mr. Wajler at your school, I would highly recommend his programs and of course his book.
