Hal Leonard

A how-to hand-drumming instruction guide for young students.

Kids love to drum, no matter what instruments you have or don't have, Beatbox: World Music Drumming 101 will let you experience a variety of world drumming styles as you accompany folk melodies and original songs. Create a basic rock pattern, recreate the sound of a mbira (thumb piano), form your own Haitian meringue ensemble, learn lively body percussion from the long tradition of hambone and step-dancing, or a lively fiddle tune with an Irish Bodhran. Experiment with call and response, layered ostinati, syncopation and improvisation; learn the Bamboo Tamboo from the Caribbean, the Highlife from West Africa, and how to make a drum talk. Helpful step-by-step learning is included, along with cross-cultural connections and historic fun facts, and suggestions on how to use the instruments you already have. The enclosed enhanced CD offers performance and instrumental tracks for each song, and PDFs of songsheets and instrument parts for printing and projection options. Suggested for grades 2-5.
