Hola Amigos! Experience authentic music styles of the Afro-Spanish-Caribbean by Puerto Rican-born author & bi-lingual educator; Alejandro Jimenez. Connect with educational philosophies and cultural backgrounds of the Spanish Caribbean to understand how they influenced the music of that area. Learn how song; dance; rhythmic instruments and drama all come together to help build confidence and promote personal expression. Originally developed and used in urban; multi-cultural settings here in the United States; the works featured in Picante are for all general music classes. Students form their own Latin Music ensembles and explore the highly rhythmic beat of the plena from Puerto Rico; the regueton which is popular among urban Latino youth; the fast two-step beat of the merengue from the Dominican Republic; the bomba from Puerto Rican folk music; and the son from Cuban dance music. These different styles influenced what we now call Salsa music. The kid-friendly ensembles have been written for Grades 5-9 and are presented from easy to more difficult. A variety of short; easily-learned ostinato rhythm patterns are played on Latin percussion and Orff instruments and added one at a time; followed by the Spanish and English lyrics. These voice parts are also made up of short ostinato patterns that; when layered in; create easily-sung harmonies in an instant! You can perform all or some of the voice parts; so do what best fits your situation. A helpful teaching sequence; dance steps and objectives linked to the National Standards are provided for each song; and all ensemble parts are reproducible! The piano/vocal printed score represents the form of each song as recorded on the companion CD; and is only a suggested guide to follow. Encourage your students to be creative and make up their own song form! Available separately: Teacher Edition (with reproducible pages); Performance/Accompaniment CD; Classroom Kit (Teacher and P/A CD). Suggested for grades 5-9.
