The World Beat Rhythms series explores rhythmic styles from different regions of the world. The hybrid compositions and rhythms in this book are influenced by the popular Samba, Olodum, and Baiao styles of Brazil. This book/CD pack includes photographs of each percussion instrument, instruction on techniques used to play each instrument, percussion scores, rhythm indexes played at different tempos, worksheets, percussion breaks, charts, and audio examples of rhythm demonstrated on their respective instruments.
The companion CD contains demonstration and play-along tracks that can be used when learning and practicing the examples. This series can be used by students who want to teach themselves or by teachers for private or group instruction.
A great asset to all music educators and band directors to get their orchestras, band ensembles, and students of all ages grooving together as one pulse. - Joe Porcaro. ©2003, Book & CD. 72 pages.
