Desert Dance - Downloadable Noodle Toonz Single

From Plank Road Publishing

by Dan Thieman

"Desert Dance" uses a non-traditional mode in the melody, a drone-like bass, and a strong beat throughout – all of which your players will love! It's in 4/4 time with a slower tempo. The Rhythm Sticks and Noodle Blocks share the same rhythms throughout, while the Chime Plate deviates during the middle section. The Chime Plate uses all three methods of playing: resonant, muted, and ratchet-like. Feel free to adapt any and all of the parts for your players as needed.

Noodle Toonz™ singles are written for a group of three lighthearted and unusual instruments: Noodle Blocks, Rhythm Sticks, and Chime Plate with Bolt Striker. Handy Noodle Kits™ (sold separately) include these three instruments and are available at You can also use similar sounding percussion instruments if you already have them available.

This downloadable single includes full performance and accompaniment only MP4 video files for your students to watch, listen, and play along with. The videos show the scrolling accompaniment score along with three color-coded student parts. This single also includes full, accompaniment, and student parts only MP3 tracks, as well as printable B&W PDFs of the individual student parts.
