The Monster Mash

Posted by lbbartolomeo on October 20, 2012

My students love this classic song.

The FORM:  Intro A B A B C A B A B A B Coda       All sections are 8- 4/4 measures.

A-verses, B-chorus, C-Bridge

Movement Idea: 

Start lying down. On Intro, slowly stand up, walk like Zombies on A and C, do hand jives on B, slowly lie back down on Coda.

Rhythm Band

The great steady beat makes it perfect for reading rhythms to rhythm band.

Primary can just keep a steady beat using different non-pitched percussion.

Intermediate can manipulate different given patterns for A, B, C.  I use these patterns:  4 quarter notes, 3 quarters and 1 quarter rest, quarter note quarter rest quarter note quarter rest, etc.
