(Grades 2-6) Step-by-Step Recipes for the Music Classroom - Are you ready for a jam session? Add harmonic flavor to familiar melodies with quick 'n easy musical recipes. Layer in guitars, keyboards, autoharp, and other pitched and non-pitched instruments for a smorgasbord of sound! HARMONY COOKBOOK provides a sequential approach to chord progressions (major, minor and dominant 7th), beginning with lighter one-chord arrangements and progressing to more full-bodied versions. Percussion grooves from the popular Percussion Cookbook can be added to these arrangements for even fuller taste! It's all here for you, step-by-step instructions, piano/vocal arrangements, reproducible singer and jam accompaniment sheets and a professionally-produced CD recording for classroom or performance. Instructional jam tracks are also provided on the CD as a practice tool to help students learn the various chord progressions in each song.
