Music and Basketball have this in common: RHYTHM! I have been teaching note values, beat and rhythm using basketballs for years. Now, due to repeated requests from my music teacher friends, I have put five of those routines to paper so others can be guided through the process! This zipped file contains five basketball routines created for specific songs which are listed on each routine. MP3s are NOT included as that would be a violation of copyright.
Rock and Roll Part 2 by Gary Glitter
All Shook Up by Elvis Presley
Let's Get It Started (Spike mix) by The Black-Eyed Peas
Twilight Zone by 2 Unlimited
Kernkraft 400 by Zombie Nation
Video addresses are shared to go with SOME of the routines. If you have any trouble accessing them, please contact me first and I will try to help you. The videos are not essential to you learning the routine, they are simply available as an additional help.
Thank you for purchasing Basketballs To The Beat!
I hope you enjoy this activity as much as we do!
