Peter Peter If You're Able is a drumming song that also includes 3 other rhythm instrument parts. Students will learn the drum part, count rhythms, learn the 3 other instrument parts, and then practice playing the different parts one at a time. They will learn ABA form and play the rhythms taught on A and will improvise on B.
Materials needed-an electronic device to watch the video lesson on, a drum (or bucket), boomwhacker (or paper towel roll), rhythm sticks (or plastic spoons), and a triangle (or metal spoons).
Difficulty level-younger kids can learn the main drum part and try to play the other instrument parts one at a time. Older kids will play the whole song straight through and will work on counting rhythms and improvising.
