Shostakovich Body Percussion Challenge

Our composer of the month for April is Dmitri Shostakovich. I am excited to share more about him, and his music, in our regular music lessons. Today I am linking two videos that teach body percussion to play along with one of my favorite pieces of his called “Waltz No. 2”.

If you want, you can play the video titled “Tutorial 2″ and just follow along, mirroring the players the best you can, while you listen to this beautiful waltz. If you really want to learn the patterns, start with Tutorial 1” and it will teach you each one.

Have fun! Leave a comment and let me know how you liked it, I thought it was pretty relaxing and fun!
