8 Rhythm-Teaching Chorals Using Vocal Speech
Singers who do not play an instrument are sometimes in need of help reading rhythms. A savvy music educator knows one way to teach rhythms is to take the "notes" out of the song. No singing, just speaking in a rhythmic way. I Can Feel the Rhythm by Greg Gilpin does just that.
This collection contains eight chorals that are fun to learn, interesting to teach and entertaining for performers and listeners. With selections for holidays and patriotic celebrations, as well as a piece that teaches how to sing softly and to "sing" musical rests your singers will learn how rhythms look, sound and feel. They will develop their own musicianship skills throughout each piece by adding dynamics and vocal expression. Drum parts are included in this collection!
