Playing instruments is one of the most favorite music classroom activities. Just as you would take time to warm up your voice, these simple traditional songs and patterns give students a chance to warm up their playing skills by investing 5-10 minutes each class period and by focusing on posture, technique and style. By using the Sing-Along Guide, you can easily choose from the 30 warm-ups (in specific keys, chord progressions and/or patterns) which you choose to develop and utilize as accompaniments to the 25 traditional songs (also included). Students who struggle with beat will greatly improve as they begin with simple one-chord patterns where they learn to feel and hear the pulse and gradually progress to adding body percussion, additional parts and then instruments.
