Fun, Easy Songs For Percussion Activities

  • Whether its kitchen instruments, Remo drums or Sound Shapes, or assorted percussion, here’s a couple of fun, easy songs that can offer little solo opportunities, splitting the group for specific parts, structured large group playing and exploration/improvisation time.

    These are two of many of the activities I used from the Sound Shape Playbook at a recent event. Here’s a peek at Ten Musicians Drumming and Alabama Gal. Find this book in the Weekly Specials section of the Music Rhapsody shop along with other selected items! (Members, use your coupon code to save even more!)

    Free to Music Box Members! PowerPoint, music and lesson suggestions for Alabama Gal are in Music Box Downloads. There’s also tips and activity ideas on drum circles. (Not a member? Join now!)


    Valentine's Day lessons are also being featured in Music Box as well as MR Members Module 2 lesson plans.

    See you in the Box!

    Happy music making,

    Gretchen Kindseth This is so exciting! We had such success with outdoor music classes last summer, I'm thinking about adding drum/percussion circles classes and maybe see about setting up a more permanent outdoor space in our parking lot. Lots to consider!
