Warm-up Pieces

£0.00

In addition to backing tracks for each of the Puzzle Pieces, there are also five additional warm-up tracks in different keys:

  • Funk Riff (concert Bb)
  • Ballad (concert C)
  • Kick (concert D)
  • Love Song (concert A)
  • Samba (percussion sounds only)

Description

The warm-up tracks are intended to be used for improvised call and response activities in whole class tuition groups. Samba can be used with instruments on any note, as the track is percussion only. However, it can also be used purely for rhythmic purposes (e.g. clapping rhythms or drumming on chairs etc.) building up layers of rhythm, in keeping with the samba style. The use of signals to start/ stop sections can be introduced here (e.g. with the use of a whistle).

You can play Samba (percussion only) here as an example:

And you can play Ballad (in C) here:

Quick Transposition Reference:
