Beat it ! African Dances is a brilliant resource for both general and more specialized music teachers working with beginner percussion groups. It presents sixteen contrasting workshops based on four African dances, providing invaluable material. Inspired by the thrilling traditional music of Africa this book demonstrates how to develop a range of rhythmic ideas using everyday classroom percussion and the body. The group's work will culminate in performances of the four dances (with or without the enhanced CD backings provided), ideal for school concerts or assemblies.
