Bring the world to your classroom with this accessible collection that starts with speech and body percussion to help students play rhythms from West Africa, the Middle East, India, Cuba, and more. Each unit introduces a geographical region, describes its traditional instruments, then uses a musical example that brings the lesson home. Recordings on the CD use authentic instruments from each region.
