Grade 2



The Jumping Bean (El Salto de Friol) is not so much challenging as it is tricky. For example, the Huapango rhythms beginning at 57-58. The 6/8 meter alternates two groups of three and three groups of two (or 6/8 - 3/4). Counting in six; 1-2-3 1-2-3 the 1-2 1-2 1-2. Once the counting trick is learned it's easy. Melodies and counter melodies will make this fun to play and very listenable. Your percussion section will have fun with plenty of parts to try. board.
