Every month we add to the SmartMusic Repertoire Library. For May we’ve added seven large ensemble titles, 34 solo titles, and a powerful new method book for teaching rhythm, titled Count Me In.
Count Me In
Count Me In is a brand-new method from FJH that offers a comprehensive approach to rhythm. Written by Darcy Vogt Williams and Brian Balmages, it offers daily exercises, a flexible counting system, ensemble pieces, and games. No instruments are required, allowing the book to be used in mixed instrument settings and enabling students to learn advanced rhythms without the need for advanced technique.
We recently spoke with co-authors Darcy and Brian about Count Me In in a webinar, which you can check out here:
