We're Orff 2! 5 Easy Orff-based units for middle primary
Tamara and Mark skillfully incorporate the primary musical media of the Orff Schulwerk approach to music education into lessons that clearly lay out a path to skill development through active music-making.
Whether the teacher has been trained in Orff Schulwerk
or not, the intuitive flow of each lesson sequence is readily understandable, thanks to the extremely clear directions,
visual cues, graphics and uncluttered layout provided by the authors. Have fun! Steven Calantropio
Education Director, The American Orff-Schulwerk Association
We're Orff 3! 5 Easy Orff-based units for upper primary
The third instalment in We're Orff! series is an absolute cracker!
This upper level of the program introduces ideas and activities perfectly suited to the age and interests of upper primary students.
It is fresh, fun and engaging - and just a bit different - harnessing everything from lunchboxes and basketballs ... to shadow puppets (which upper students LOVE), as it combines language, music and movement and utilises speech, rhyme, rhythm, body percussion, tuned and untuned percussion ... and lots of exploration and improvisation ... all leading to joyful performance.
Praise for We're Orff 3
Your DVDs and books are like a mini-workshop for me; one that reviews the most important aspect of Orff and that, of course, is its process. Your DVDs show students working with the material - and that makes all the difference!
