Lessons: Speech, Body Percussion & Untuned Percussion

Speech, Body Percussion, and Untuned Percussion Lessons Perfect for RIGHT NOW

In 2017 Roger Sams co-authored Percussive Play: Building Rhythmic Skills Through Partwork, Poetry, and Movement with Michael Vasquez. This book features the active music making that teachers are most using in many circumstances right now: speech, body percussion and untuned percussion.

We’re delighted to share two lessons from that collection with you as a free gift. If you find these lessons helpful you may wish to consider purchasing Percussive Play through the publisher, Music Is Elementary, or from your favorite music education retailer. This book comes with free digital downloads of the electronic visuals, which will support your best teaching if you’re teaching in person, online, or hybrid.
