Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Tunes and Grooves for Music Education: Music for Classroom Use, by Patricia Shehan Campbell. Pearson Prentice Hall. New Jersey. 2007.

Who knew that Benjamin Franklin went to France, to teach the ladies how to dance? Or that the “Buzzard Lope” is a song for a ring dance with a high-stepping male dancer in the center who pantomimes the bird’s approach to a carcass? These and many other interesting facts are found within the pages of Tunes and Grooves for Music Education.

As a specialist in early childhood music and group piano instruction, I find “Tunes and Grooves” an invaluable resource. This compilation of music from around the world including Africa, Asia and the Americas may be used by classroom teachers, university students and music therapists. Included are lullabies, singing games, story songs and ballads, songs of love, dance music, work and worship, percussion ensembles, and traditional European rounds and canons. Campbell provides a wealth of material as well as practical suggestions for incorporating melodies (“Tunes”) and rhythms (“Grooves”) in classrooms, performance, and early childhood classes. The “Grooves” include a culturally diverse set of rhythms from which percussion pieces and drumming ensembles may be developed.

This comprehensive volume is organized alphabetically by title. Those of us who work with folk music will surely appreciate the detailed background given for each of the more than 200 selections. More than just a collection of repertoire, “Tunes and Grooves” is an essential handbook for ethnomusicologists. It includes a description of cultural origins, genre, function and translation for each, along with suggestions for instrumental play, eurhythmic movement and creative improvisation.

I find this collection to be highly useable, especially the indices of chords and meters, and the glossary, which includes definitions not found in the Harvard Dictionary. The melodies are approached through singing, with moveable Do(La-based minor) solfege syllables and numbers suggested. Most of the examples have “fake book” style notation, with chord symbols, suitable for simple piano, guitar, or autoharp accompaniment. The three CDs have about 60 selections to aid in learning stylistic nuances of the music. For the rest of the songs, the authors posted an iTunes list on the Pearson website. In the author’s own words, “Listening has always been important to us who perform, and so the point of playing these notated tunes and grooves is to consider how they are played by those from within the culture…”

Patricia Campbell. Tunes and Grooves for Music Education—music for classroom use. Upper Saddle River, NDZJ: Pearson Education. 2008. 478 pp. 3 Compact disk set available.

Tunes and Grooves for Music Education is an expansive anthology containing more than 200 traditional songs, melodies, and rhythmic phrases from various cultures including Africa, Latin America, Europe, the Caribbean, and North America. This text is designed to serve as a resource for developing a comprehensive understanding about teaching and performing music in authentic contexts.

An extended introduction sets the stage for using this resource in the music classroom. After discussing cultural and musical identity and a rationale of use of world music, Campbell offers a description of curricular and community uses of world musics in and beyond the music classroom, then provides a brief description of what is found inside the book. Finally, suggestions for use of guitars, piano, percussion and singing to teach the songs and rhythmic phrases contained within Tunes and Grooves for Music Education.

Songs are presented alphabetically. For each song, there is a transcription, brief background statement about the tune and its origins, a cultural context and brief discussion of the culture in which the song originated, a list of suggested learning experiences, and recommended listening. Each song or rhythmic activity is contained on a companion set of three compact disks.

Tunes and Grooves for Music Education is arguably the most diverse single-text resource for teaching world musics. The sheer number of songs and the range of cultures explored within this book make it unique among currently available teaching materials. For the music educator with a limited budget, Tunes and Groves for Music Education provides “one-stop shopping” for multicultural songs for classroom use. This text will quickly become one of the most used resources in the multicultural music classroom.
