Mallet Madness

Themes and Variations

SKU: 20

This is an exciting collection of engaging activities (K-6) for mallet percussion instruments that will energize your music classroom and promote learning in the concept areas of beat, rhythm, melody, harmony, form, and expressive qualities through the use of songs, poems, music-to-literature connections, and reproducible flashcards. Thanks to its unique rotation system, your students will play all the mallet percussion instruments in your classroom as well as many of the non-pitched instruments. Suggestions for adapting the activities for use in classrooms with few or even no mallet instruments are also given.
