Creating Music With Everyday "Stuff"
What fun! Using the concept from the hit show Stomp, these clever pieces feature items like rulers, staplers, wastebaskets, pencil sharpeners, and other common classroom "stuff" to create unique rhythmic soundscapes. The pieces may be taught by rote or by using the parts included to help your students build rhythmic independence. Most of the titles may be learned quickly and make a great way to start or end a class.
These compositions are also the perfect change of pace for any concert or performance and are guaranteed to be student and audience favorites! A CD with optional accompaniment "effects" is included. (Grades 3-6)
