SAMBA | 5 Samba Topics

SAMBA | 5 Samba Topics

Topics Include: 1. Amazon Samba 2. Dinosaur Samba 3. Caribbean Samba 4. Reggae Samba 5. Solar System Samba Each idea can be easily expanded to last a few weeks or a half-term. All 5 topics come with 3-5 sections, including; Break section, Groove section and Call & Response section At keystage 3-4 it is possible to complete in one lesson but you are more than likely going to want to expand the topic over a full half-term, in which case, some pieces you will also find songs to go with them, games you can play and - obviously - you can swap pupils round 5 times until they have been on each instrument [5 weeks]. The full book includes Audio files, how to learn, teach and lead Samba, more call & response and break patterns, alternate rhythms and exercises, songs for Samba, etc. Note: Any issues, contact me through the Sticks, Keys & Frets: Teaching Resources page on Facebook.
