Review:
Let face it; children love to make a racket. This resource is designed to help parents, teachers and childcare providers transform that joyful noise into equally enjoyable music.

Focusing on simple, homemade percussion instruments such as rhythm sticks, shakers, bells and sand blocks, along with a few store bought items such as cymbals, triangle and tambourine, the author illustrates simple and effective ways to teaching children to play music.

The wonderful thing about teaching children rhythm at an early age is that it also introduces them to listening and responding, nonverbal communication and working in harmony (literally) with a small group.
