Tempo Aerobics, "Fermata Freeze" and "Synchronized Strumming" are just three of the more than two dozen games in this invigorating collection that will have your students running, jumping and moving their way to music learning. More sprint than marathon, these active games require little or no setup, are easy to teach in nearly every classroom setting, and reinforce important music skills including rhythm, pitch, dynamics, instruments, note-reading, music history, and many more. A mix of cooperative and competitive and featuring options for older and younger students, these activities--many of which employ an aural/listening component thanks to the included mixed-media CD--will be a medal-winning addition to your classroom!
