In this new book Andy Gleadhill takes pupil and teachers to the next level of progressive African Drumming, exploring new African instruments and rhythms, and enabling pupils to discover their full musical potential and creativity.
The book introduces new instruments such as the Talking Drums and Dun Duns and shows you how to incorporate African melodies in to your drumming with tunes played on the Balafon or African Xylophone.
Each of the six new tunes is graduated in difficulty to allow for musical progression but they also contain differentiated parts, so that all pupils can play in the ensembles, regardless of ability. Although the book introduces new African instruments, all the tunes can be played on any drums available to the players.
Like all of Andy’s books, ‘Andy Gleadhill’s African Drumming Book 2’ is suitable for both music teachers and for non-specialists and no prior experience is assumed – not even the ability to read music. It includes advice on basic playing techniques as well as warm-up exercises, lesson plans and repertoire. There are also very useful supporting audio and video resources online.
A download link will be provided when you purchase the book which will grant you access to all the relevant audio files.
