Synopsis

Agogo Bells to Xylophone A Friendly Guide to Classroom Percussion Instruments by Maggie Cotton

Agogo bells to Xylophone is just what it says - a friendly guide to all those instruments which clog up the music cupboard and don't come with an instruction manual. Maggie Cotton's clever descriptions and Alison Dexter's clear illustrations unlock the magic of these often misunderstood music makers. The book is a treasury of simple but effective techniques for getting the best from classroom instruments - from holding claves correctly so that the sound carries, to the party trick of the tambourine thumb trill. And there are sections on care and safety, restoring damaged instruments, and advice on instruments for children with special needs. An invaluable handbook for every school - now with a fresh new cover.
