Body Percussion 1 teaches a basic feeling for rhythm, and confidence in handling rhythmic structures and patterns from the Caribbean, Brazil, the Middle East, and Sub-Saharan Africa. The focus is on 4/4 time. Knowledge of musical notation is not necessary: the practice oriented set of symbols used is self-explanatory. All of the rhythms and exercises can be performed using body instruments, objects of everyday use and/or percussion instruments. Each chapter includes practical hints and background information.
The accompanying CD contains all of the basic exercises and patterns to provide acoustic support during practice.
