Product Description
Level B Traffic Jam Sessions will engage your students in listening, analyzing, playing, and reading rhythms containing ta, ti-ti, tiki-tiki (tiri-tiri), ti-tiki (ti-tiri), tiki-ti (tiri-ti), and single eighth note with eighth rest. These 15 different rhythm sessions are thoughtfully designed so they can be taught and performed in a variety of ways:

Unison four-beat or eight-beat rhythm practice

Four-beat ostinatos, layered – two groups, each plays and repeats a different line at the same time

Four-beat rhythm canons – two groups play and repeat all eight beats, one group starting four beats after the other

Two-beat rhythm canons – two to four groups play and repeat all eight beats, starting two beats apart

Traffic Jam Sessions progress gradually in difficulty, and each session consists of three pages: (A) words and graphics, (B) rhythm notation with words/graphics, and (C) notation alone. Moving through sessions in ABC order helps build skills/concepts. A detailed teaching guide is included.

Using a projector during Traffic Jam Sessions will help you guide students and keep them focused. For composition activities, rotating drum circles, or teaching without a projector, print, and cut cards containing desired rhythm patterns. (The images print nicely in gray-scale or color.) Printed cards are great for facilitating drum circles. Multiple rhythms can be layered, and students can practice a variety of rhythms as they either pass the cards or rotate to different instruments.

If you and your students like my PEANUT BUTTER JAM SESSIONS, you'll love Traffic Jam Sessions! You might also be interested in my LEVEL A TRAFFIC JAM SESSIONS, which include 12 sessions that teach ta, ti-ti, and rest.

Thanks for stopping by!
