Great intro to body percussion by a master coach. Kids can learn this in 10 minutes and then in pairs have them create their own body percussion to present to the others.

Body Percussion: Part 2″ by Beat Goes On
1:34 minutes

Your kids are starting to get the hang of this body percussion movement. Please have them note that their movements are repeated patterns. In Music, we call that ostinati. Where else in the world, do they see or use repeated patterns? (Math, Dance, outside the window, line of trees or fence posts) like symmetry when drawing (Visual Arts). WOW – what integration from one short video, teachers?? You can get a lot of integration from this. Maximize it!

Time for a challenge. Ok, girls and boys. It is time to try repeated patterns with our body percussion to music. How can we use the percussion moves we just learned to keep a beat with the music?

Then in small groups, ask the kids to create four repeated moves to dance to this music. Allow each group to perform in the middle, one after another. Come on, let’s celebrate!
