Loving this cover by Madilyn Bailey of the Maroon 5 song, Maps. I’ve been using it with my advanced tappers for a little combination. My tappers call this style “lyrical tap” – when you tap to a song that could traditionally be for contemporary or lyrical. I like that this song has a lot of pauses in it which are fun to fill with tap!
Grab this song on iTunes
Enjoy – happy Monday!
This one’s been around for a while, but I recently re-discovered it in my playlists.
Today’s New Music Monday song is an acoustic cover of Hey Ya by Obadiah Parker
I like to use this song in my modern and contemporary classes and also for a cool-down in jazz class. The only problem is for the first few times you play it, the kids will be concentrating on figuring out why it sounds so familiar. I know I was!
