MUS-PP5 Percussive Play by Roger Sams and Michal Vasquez


MUS-PP5  Percussive Play  by Roger Sams and Michal Vasquez

Percussive Play is the first supplement to the Purposeful Pathways core materials, and thus, utilizes the Purposeful Pathways Model, integrating Orff-Schulwerk, Kodály, and eurhythmics. It contains ten active music making lessons for the elementary music classroom. Electronic Visuals are available for this book in three formats: Microsoft® PowerPoint®, SMART Notebook™, and Promethean ActivInspire. The printable manipulatives are available as PDF files. The electronic visuals and printable manipulatives are available to you for free with the purchase of this book.

Our intention with all Purposeful Pathways materials is to provide multiple possibilities, or pathways, for anyone teaching elementary music to adapt to their personal school setting. We believe that music is most effective when it is purposeful, balancing conceptual learning with performance skills to develop thoughtful musicians capable of managing artistic choice with skill and ease.
