This guide from Andy Gleadhill shows you how to use world musical styles to introduce composition to whole classes as well as smaller groups. As with all Andy's teaching guides, this is based on years of teaching experience and is highly practical and down to earth. The accompanying CD contains examples which demonstrate the composition process.

Chapters include What is World Music?; Getting Started; The Method and Process; Grid Music; Composing with African Drumming; Composing with Brazilian Samba; Composing with Indonesian Gamelan; Composing with Indian Ragas; Creating a Performance.

This book is ideal companion to Andy's world music teaching guides and will enable pupils to explore creative composition and take their world music experience to the next level.
