Series: Music First Express Format: Softcover with CD Composer: Cheryl Lavender
Here's a fun collection that makes rhythm reading a snap, tap and a clap! This motivational classroom resource consists of over 60 rhythm drills and song rhythms, beginning with the simplest patterns and progressing sequentially to more complex patterns. Included are 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 patterns with quarter, eighth, half and whole notes/rests. Syncopated rhythms, tied notes, sixteenth notes and dotted rhythms are also included for extra challenge in building skills. The rhythm drills in the Book/Cassette or Book/CD Pak are reproducible for classroom use, so your students can keep them in their folders for daily use or you can make posters or overhead transparencies for whole-group practice. The book comes complete with teaching ideas, reproducible pages, extension suggestions and assessment strategies. Best of all, each exercise has its own contemporary backup track on the CD. These professionally-produced tracks are orchestrated in a variety of contemporary styles and will make a terrific motivator for general music classes, choirs, or instrumental groups. For Grades 2-6.
