Leeav and Emily take you through the body percussion movements and rhythm, and then show you how to put it all together with the melody and lyrics.
Music performed just by singers and without any other instruments
Percussion: Percussion instruments are a type of musical instrument that make sounds by tapping, slapping, scraping or shaking.
Rhythm is the particular pattern of notes in a song. To find the rhythm of a song, hum the song silently in your head while you clap your hands for every note. In the song Bring Me Little Water Sylvie, there are two different rhythms to follow: there is the rhythm of the words that you sing, and the rhythm that you create using body percussion. Can you clap out both rhythms?
Body Percussion describes music that is created by using your hands, feet and body to tap, slap, and scrape.
